Of beetles and bosses on sabbatical

Conservation Ecology Lab denizens Janice Lee, Lainie Qie and Enoka Kudavidanage, otherwise known as the “dung beetle girls”, attended the Scarabnet meeting in Black Rock Forest, New York from September 25-29.  They met fellow dung beetle researchers, presented their work, and engaged in serious discussions on the ecology of their study organisms, asking questions such as “What is the best dung to use in our pitfall traps?”

After the conference, they traveled up to Harvard in Boston, Massachusetts to visit Navjot Sodhi (and harass his dog, Max). They are happy to report (and provide photographic evidence) that their adviser-on-sabbatical is doing well and is still hard at work in his tiny office down the hall from E.O. Wilson’s room.
