Testing predictions of the core-satellite and resource-breadth hypotheses in small mammal communities: field tests of a macroecological pattern. Together with collaborator Jake Goheen, the lab earns NSF support to study the relative influences of dietary generalism/specialism and dispersal limitations on the diversity of small mammal communities in Kenya. This research leverages Project BASEPAIR, the UHURU experiment, and our new DNA sequencing facility at Mpala Research Centre. Grant: 1930820.
Of note: Colleague Dr. Jake Goheen from U. Wyoming is recruiting a grad student (MSc or PhD) to collaborate on our NSF-funded research on small mammal communities and food webs in Kenya. This is an outstanding new opportunity (application deadline: October 1, 2019); Dr. Goheen is a fantastic mentor.
