Alison and Hannah have successfully handed in their honours projects, on time and with some really interesting results. Alison has shown clear chemical distinctions between populations of the bark beetle Ips grandicollis in Australia, indicating that significant divergence in cuticular hydrocarbons can occur in rapid time in an invasive species. Hannah meanwhile has demonstrated that seasonal plasticity exists in the capacity for sparrows to shed heat loads through their beaks. They’ve done a great job. Well done to both of them.
