Much has happened in the last three months. Deah Lieurance successfully defended her dissertation on plant-insect interactions in Lonicera in the Environmental Sciences PhD program, and is now happily employed in Florida as an Invasive Species Assessment Coordinator located at the University of Florida. Andy Officer defended his M.S. thesis on impacts of a powdery mildew fungus on the competitive impacts of garlic mustard. He is employed with a company marketing eye bank technologies in Dayton. Most of the remaining group (Sam Davis, Chad Rigsby) and I are heading to the Gordon Conference in Plant-Herbivore interactions soon.
