Davies Lab Update

March 25, 2022

It has been a busy start to 2022 for the Davies Lab! In January and February, lab members travelled to Kenya to collect GPS and LiDAR data at Mpala Research Centre and the Selenkey Conservancy.  In March, several members of the lab presented at the Savanah Science Network meeting in Kruger National Park, South Africa.
