Seminar, “Landscape-Level Experimental Decoupling of Competing Vertebrate Insectivores in Hawaiian Forest Islands” Room 312A

On Thursday September 14th Dr. David Flaspohler from Michigan Technological University will be presenting a seminar on his research at 11:40-12:40 in room 312A in Holdsworth Hall at UMass. Dr. Flaspohler is a conservation biologist interested in the influence of a variety of human activities on natural ecosystems, including trophic interactions and food-web dynamics in Hawaiian forests, which will be the topic of his presentation (abstract below). More information on Dr. Flaspohlers’ work can be found at http://www.mtu.edu/forest/about/faculty-staff/faculty/flaspohler/ Landscape-Level Experimental Decoupling of Competing Vertebrate Insectivores in Hawaiian Forest Islands Ecologists have long sought to understand the role of predators as drivers of food-web structure, with particular modern emphasis on omnivorous predators in complex communities. Effective ecological experiments to resolve food web effects of mobile, large-bodied vertebrate predators are rare because of the large temporal and spatial dynamical scales over which these processes operate. Little is known about whether and how predators and ecosystem size – per se – interact to jointly influence...
