Ries lab receives new funding to resue NSF-funded data on butterfly thermal ecology

Mariana Abarca will be leading this project to compile data and develop models of thermal responses by tapping into 40 years of NSF research on Pierid butterflies. She will work with the Kingsolver lab at UNC who to compile data from their long history of research on the subject and also with academic monitoring programs led by Diane Debinski (Montana State University), Art Shapiro, Jim Thorne and Dave Waetjen (UC-Davis) and Matt Forrister (Univ. NV-Reno).
