Dr. Jelena Pantel, a former graduate student of Dr. Mat Leibold at the University of Texas who conducted research for her PhD at KBS, has recently published a paper in the American Naturalist based on this work.  Dr. Pantel collected Daphnia (D. pulex × pulicaria) from different locations around KBS and compared how well they established in experimental ponds.

Dr. Pantel's work at KBS was supported by both Lauff and MSU Graduate School funds. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Illinois.  Dr. Leibold will be a speaker in the 2011 "Eminent Ecologist" program http://www.kbs.msu.edu/research/research-seminars/eminent-ecologists
