Christian Connors in UConn today

Christian is interviewed about his work in the lab on how fragmentation affects parasitism rates of Connecticut Lepidoptera  – check it out here.  Christian has been working in the lab for two summers now, first as an NSF-REU in 2018 student and is funded by a SURF grant he obtained this year.

New paper by James Mickley et al on affordable weather stations.

Just out on Early View at Methods in Ecology and Evolution, a paper led by James Mickley outlining the design of an affordable envionmental microcontroller unit (EMU) that can measure and log several envioronmental variables. What’s more, the units can be constructed from easily sourced DIY electronics components that collectively cost about $20. James and the team has produced an extensive supplement detailing how to make the units and code to run them, which is available from the accompanying GitHub repository. Great work James!
