NSF DoB grant funded

We are delighted to officially announce that we have been awarded a Dimensions of Biodiversity grant from NSF! Using our beloved turtle ants and their symbiotic gut microbes, we will be "Identifying how the ecological and evolutionary interactions between host and symbiont shape holobiont biodiversity". This work is in collaboration with my excellent fellow PIs Corrie Moreau, Jake Russell, and John Wertz, and the incomparable postdocs Shauna Price and Jon Sanders. - 10/Sep/2014
