Postdoc Katie Westby and Tyson Director Kim Medley have a new paper in PLOS One. The project is the result of a unique collaboration with Associate Professor Katie Costanzo at Canisius College in Buffalo, NY. After months of planning remotely, Costanzo traveled to Tyson to run an experiment in the Medley Lab.  Their study shows evidence that the population growth model for Aedes albopictus is sensitive to variations in size-fecundity relationships.
