Several members represented our group at the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation (ATBC) conference that occurred in Kuching, Malaysia on the first week of July.

There were posters by our MSc students who just finished:

ZHOU Wenjing: “The relationship between the diversity of herbaceous plants and the extent and heterogeneity of croplands in non-crop vegetation in an agricultural landscape of South China

HE Ruchuan: “The effect of mimicry frequency on natural predation in a Batesian mimicry system

Two of our Ph.D. candidates presented their results from previous projects:

JIANG Demeng: “How information about predation in mixed-species flocks changes through the breeding cycle in a subtropical, limestone forest”

Salindra DAYANANDA: “The conservation value of small forest fragments within monoculture rubber plantations in Xishuangbanna, China”

A PhD student from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden, ZHOU Liping, externally advised by Eben Goodale, also spoke on “Mixed-species bird flocks of south and southwest China”.

Previous postdoctoral fellow in the lab, Ari Martínez (not in picture), presented “Mixed-species flocking propensity and intraspecific sociality influence the colonization and extinction rates of bird species on islands”.

Eben GOODALE presented: “Multinational collaborations in ecology and environmental science within Asia: Current status and pathways forward.”
