I am excited to share that my NSF CAREER proposal was funded! This $1.1M project will examine the linkages between species diversity and ecological function in the very locally abundant and diverse group of freshwater mussels. The project will employ a combination of observational, experimental, and modeling approaches. With this the lab will also conduct workshops and organize and assist with day camps at the Alabama Natural History Museum. To learn more about the project, check out the NSF website and the Biological Sciences News.
