Congrats to lab alumna Karla, who has a paper (based on her honours thesis) accepted in Avian Conservation and Ecology-Écologie et conservation des oiseaux. The citation is:

MSc(Env) student Matt, his co-supervisor Max Liboiron and I had a productive meeting at the end of the past month as part of the Fogo Island project. We had a participatory citizen science meeting with fishermen where we collaboratively defined our research question and developed a data sampling strategy.
