A visiting researcher from the University of Alabama at Birmingham is collaborating with MBA scientists and using research facilities at the Plymouth laboratory to advance our knowledge of how and why invasive species spread.

Dr Stacy Krueger-Hadfield is carrying out a mescocosm experiment with the Mieszkowska lab at the MBA, as part of her project Ecological niche partitioning can stabilize and uncouple biphasic life cycles under different environmental conditions.
