Call for proposals: Leveraging natural history collections to understand the impacts of global change

Natural history collections in museums, herbaria, seed banks, and tissue banks provide some of the most valuable information sources in an ecologist’s toolbox: time series data. These collections not only permanently archive preserved specimens, but also critical historical and contemporary information about how species distributions, interactions, and phenotypes respond to global change across time scales.…

Remote sensing as a tool to determine population genetics

Blonder et al. just had their paper entitled “Remote sensing of ploidy level in quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.)” published in Journal of Ecology. In this blog post, Benjamin Blonder explains how remote sensing can be used to determine population genetics of aspen in the Rocky Mountains (Colorado, USA). Can you tell much about the genetics of…
