This press release from the UC Berkeley College of Natural Resources features BIDS Alumni Lauren Ponisio, whose recent article in Ecology Letters describes her research toward a clearer understanding of how networks of plants and pollinators form over time to create biotic communities. The results of their research could help scientists and conservationists rebuild communities when a species goes locally extinct.
