Well, where did summer 2015 go?  The semester starts tomorrow and the lab is heading back from all kinds of places – Peruvian Amazon, Bolivian Andes, Peruvian Andes, Ecuador Amazon, among others.  We welcome new PhD student Michael Esbach who spent his summer in the Solomon Islands, and in western Amazonia (Ecuador).  Looking forward to a real busy semester with students finishing their thesis/dissertation, qualifying exams, grant proposals, teaching, etc. Go Gators!
