Monday’s solar eclipse was 93% max eclipse in Fayetteville. After watching max coverage, we documented how the moon changed the light environment on campus as it moved across the sun. What a change!
A warm welcome to Dr. Tim Sullivan, a new postdoctoral fellow in the Westerman Lab!
It was an exciting day in the Westerman lab, as our first F1 butterfly emerged from their chrysalis this morning, and Bicyclus anynana, our latest and last (at least for the foreseeable future!) species addition to the butterfly facility, arrived this morning!
A warm welcome to the newest members of the Westerman lab, who arrived Monday morning!
Wet lab is ready for reagents and eager scientists!
Dr. Westerman recently received a collaborative grant to work with Dr. Neelendra Joshi and graduate student Stephen Robertson in the Entomology Department on nocturnal pollinators! We look forward to building a strong collaborative relationship with the UARK entomology department.
