First paper from Jack McLachlan's Masters work is now published in early view in Freshwater Biology. The paper, "Strong zonation of benthic communities across a tidal
freshwater height gradient" was coauthored by Hamish and lab alum, Jess Haghkerdar and demonstrates that benthic communities can display strong differences across a small area. These surprising community patterns were likely driven by harsh intertidal wet-dry conditions and strong fish predation. Check it out now!
Lab alum Jess Haghkerdar, along with Jack McLachlan, Alexis Ireland and Hamish Greig, was recently published in Ecology and Evolution (link). This work on the cumulative impacts of repeat disturbances on stream communities was featured in April's issue of Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment, a journal of the Ecological Society of America. The issue is sent to all ESA members and is one of the most-read journals in ecology!
