Ryan visits the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of Texas at Austin

Ryan visited the University of Texas at Austin last week and gave the weekly seminar in the Department of Integrative Biology. He talked about our lab’s work on estimating historical extinctions in Singapore and on untangling the roles of dispersal assembly and niche assembly in ecological communities. He was hosted by Asst. Prof. Caroline Farrior, and enjoyed learning about her lab’s work on understanding the structure of plant communities using a combination of theoretical and empirical approaches.

He also visited the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University, where he met with colleagues and presented our lab’s work at the Theoretical Ecology Lab Tea.
