In early August, iEcoLab graduate student Nick Huron presented at the 2020 ESA Annual Meeting. The meeting of course occurred virtually this year, and the theme was “Harnessing the ecological data revolution.”
Nick’s talk, “Anthropocene extinction on an adaptive landscape: Shifting loss in a genus of island lizards,” was co-authored by not only iEco’s Dr. Helmus, but also by Dr. Blair Hedges. Nick’s research focuses on the Leiocephalus clade of lizards, where he is looking at non-random extinction and biodiversity loss. You can read more about his findings in his abstract, posted here!
