Marty Condon, professor of biology at Cornell College, has studied flies in the tropics for years. In a paper published in Science this week, she reports evidence that there is more to a fly’s ecological niche than where it lives and what it eats—you have to look at what eats the fly, as well.
Dimensions is currently recruiting for a paid ($15/Hr) summer internship at the Thedacare Center for Healthcare Value in Appleton, Wisconsin.

To fully understand efforts to protect sea turtles and other tropical animals, it’s useful to visit a place like Costa Rica and meet the people involved. It’s even more helpful to be guided by experts in both the fields of biology and psychology/sociology, as a group of Cornell students were in 2011.
