“While ecosystem ecologists typically think large-scale, our work highlights how the little things that can be unseen, like herbivore parasites, can shape large-scale processes like plant biomass across landscapes,” said professor Aimée Classen
The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at the University of Michigan presented the 17th Annual Early Career Scientists Symposium: Racial Justice and Anti-Racist Research in EEB in March and April 2022.
Bees are abuzz over sweet nectar with a pinch of salt
University of Michigan Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Nathan Sanders and his colleagues set out to test whether pollinators have a taste for salt in flower nectar.
Their fascinating results were published March 2, 2022 in Biology Letters. Researchers have done similar investigations with one or two species, but this is the first time it's been tested across multiple species in a natural environment.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, EEB needs your support.
