Congratulations Micaela Santos for defending her Ph.D. thesis!

Micaela Santos successfully defended her Ph.D. thesis through videoconference. She studied the consequences of habitat loss and fragmentation on plant-insect herbivore-parasitoid food webs in a dryland landscape. Her research allows understanding how habitat connectivity and area influence interaction diversity and network structure and robustness in this system. This is also a pioneering study in terms the valuable natural history information is generated. Bravo Mica!

One of her thesis chapters has already been published in Ecology, and others will be forthcoming.
