Marine to Myrmecologist: One Entomologist’s Journey to Understand and Conserve Native Biodiversity
Meet Jackson Helms IV, Ph.D., postdoctoral researcher at the Kellogg Biological Station at Michigan State University, whose research focuses on how restoring intensive agriculture to native vegetation maximizes the ecosystem services of insects; how dispersal tradeoffs shape population dynamics, species interactions, and the evolution of life histories; and how to conserve and protect landscapes. Jackson is the subject of the next installment of our "Standout Early Career Professionals" series.
After a Flood, How Do Insects and Other Invertebrates Recover?
After a 100-year flood struck south central Oklahoma in 2015, a study of the insects, arthropods, and other invertebrates in the area revealed striking declines of most invertebrates in the local ecosystem, a result that researchers say illustrates the hidden impacts of natural disasters.
