Would you like to join a fifteen-member USGS Powell working group of federal and academic research ecologists and entomologists studying the theoretical and applied aspects of insect invasion?

The group is developing quantitative models to help predict the potential level of impact of newly invading herbivory-specialist insects and to test the enemy-release and defense-free space hypothesis in insect invasion. The intern will have a lead role in further development of the TraFac database, developing and testing statistical models predicting insect invasion and host plant defense, and publishing results.

Open to students with current NSF funding, or other existing funding source.

Deadline is May 6. Please contact Kathryn Thomas if interested.
