Good-bye Allison!

We said goodbye to Allison Shultz in August. Allison recently completed her MS thesis on the evolution of plumage coloration in tanagers. She studied the evolution of plumage in tanagers using a model of avian vision.  She gathered thousands of spectrophotometer readings for males and females of all species of tanagers.  She then applied comparative methods to learn about color evolution using the phylogeny for tanagers. She is continuing her studies in Scott Edward’s lab at Harvard University where she will be pursuing her PhD. Good luck Allison!
