This morning Rosario Miranda defended her undergraduate (licenciatura) thesis at the Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences of the National University of Cuyo. For this project she used mathematical models and computer simulations to explore how the presence of species with aggressive behavior influence plant and pollinator assemblages and their interactions. Her results indicate that the presence of aggressive species may have strong consequences on community structure.
Rosario is now off to Belgium to start a Master degree in tropical biodiversity and ecosystems, during which she will spend extended periods in Belgium, Madagascar, and French Guiana. Best wishes Rosario for this new stage in your career!
