Congratulations to the newly minted PhDs from the lab, Rochelle Kelly and Leith Leiser-Miller!! Both of them did a terrific job defending their dissertations last week. Rochelle’s research revealed geographic and ecological factors that affect the diversity, distribution, and activity of bats in the San Juan archipelago. Leith’s dissertation led to exciting discoveries about the acoustic diversity and sensory ecomorphology of phyllostomid bats . We are so proud of all the work they were able to accomplish!
