Ants are a dominant component of tropical ecosystems, but like most tropical life the diversity is threatened by massive habitat conversion. My research has focused on documenting ant diversity in Central America, taking students up and down mountains and through the mud to sample ants in the last fragments of conserved forest. Back in the lab, DNA analysis is clarifying the fundamental nature of species diversity, both the how and the when of diversification across the MesoAmerican landscape.

Science Night Live is free and open to the public 21 or over. Please arrive early, as seating and parking will be limited. Click here to learn more about the Science Night Live lecture series.
