Can an Invasive Insect Stand the Heat?

Back in the summer of 2015 (Dr. Grayson’s 1st summer at UR!) we did a reciprocal transplant experiment at UR and Mountain Lake Biological Station using individuals sourced from the Coastal Plain and the Appalachian Mountains. It was a big endeavor: lots of folks contributed their time and energy to the data collection, analysis, and contextualization of the study. We are so excited to announce that the paper from this project is now officially published in Biological Invasions!

There’s been a lot of media interest in the gypsy moth work we’ve been doing in the Grayson Lab this year. This is thanks to the great efforts of folks in University of Richmond Communications Office.

Our latest media release was a two page spread in the Autumn 2015 edition of the University of Richmond Magazine. You can see the online version here.UR Magazine Autumn 2015
