A sampling of some of the projects in the lab -- I also try to keep several collaborations going with people around the
world, and most of those are not listed here.
Some of my current projects include studies of
(1) competition - coexistence trade-offs in a tropical ant-plant system. An NSF-funded collaboration with Emilio Bruna (University of Florida), we're working on fators that promote coexistence of specialist and generalist ants using Tococa bullifera and Maieta guianensis;
(2) experiments on effects of resource heterogeneity for host-parasitoid interactions, using colonies of Callosobruchus and parasitoids in the lab;
(3) collaborative work with Nora Underwood and post-doc Kurt Anderson on the spatial ecology of plant-herbivore interactions and effects of induced resistance;
(4) the community ecology of cynipid gall-wasps on oak trees and their parasitoids, which includes a couple of experiments;
