Swapping microbes on flowers


January 2023

Magda Argueta-Guzman led the first published paper arising from our graduate seminar on pollinators and pollination! This paper was a real departure for all of us, but we (and especially Magda!) learned a lot in the process. We looked at terminology used in the scientific literature on managed and unmanaged birds and bees, and make suggestions to avoid using loaded terminology. Congratulations to Maghda and our friend and fearless leader on this project Erin Wilson-Rankin.

It is really bittersweet to say goodbye to a bunch of awesome undergrads! The pandemic cut our time together too short, but we will treasure the time you were with us and look forward to what comes next for you. We look forward to all the great things that Noah Kim (bottom row 2nd from right), Kevin Flores (not pictured), Chloe Lam (bottom row, 2nd from left), Aberdeen Fernandez (bottom row first from right), Helen Vo (top row 3rd from right), and Ava Stevenson (top row 1st from left) accomplish!
