The Moorcroft Lab bids a fond farewell to our friends, Nathan Ranc and Erik Larson, who are moving on to new to new endeavors. Nathan will be starting a postdoctoral fellowship in the Wilmers Lab in the Environmental Studies Department at UC Santa Cruz. Erik will be working as a Research Scientist in the Chemistry Science Laboratory (CSL) of NOAA. We wish them success in their new positions and hope that they visit us soon!
The Moorcroft lab would like to congratulate our graduate student, Nathan Ranc, on the successful defense of his thesis on April 27th! The topic of his thesis was "The interplay between memory and resource preferences drives animal space-use patterns." We couldn't be more proud of you, Dr. Ranc!
