Happy New Year 2016!
This new year starts for me with two papers just published in Perspectives in Plant Ecology, Evolutions and Systematics and Rangeland Ecology & Management. The first paper, which highlights the spatial segregation of subordinate species with traits comparison with the dominant species, results from a great collaboration with my Brazilian colleagues (and friends) working on the role of subordinate plant species in tropical ecosystems. I really enjoyed working with them and would love to visit them in Brazil (maybe this year?). The second paper was co-led by two amazing student researchers (Julie and Jared) from UC Berkeley during my postdoctoral research in California. For this experiment we collected cow dungs in the field and tested seed dispersal of invasive and introduced plant species by cattle.
Thanks to all the collaborators for these two great papers!
