Congratulations Pascal!

Congratulations to Pascal Title who recently defended his MS thesis on niche evolution in tanagers. Pascal’s thesis adds another dimension to our ongoing studies of tanager diversification. Pascal used environmental data in combination with georeferenced occurrence data to see if climatic niche evolution is correlated with diversification rates in tanagers. In addition, Pascal looked for patterns of niche divergence and niche conservatism among closely related species of tanagers. The result was a nice, integrated thesis that required mastery of a variety of subjects. Now that he is finished with his MS, Pascal will soon begin working on his PhD in Dan Rabosky’s lab at the University of Michigan. We wish him the best of luck!
