Yanjun Du visits the Primack Lab

Posted by Amanda Gallinat

Recently, the Primack Lab received a visit from our colleague Yanjun Du.

Du is an assistant professor at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and has collaborated with the Primack Lab on several international projects, including a recently published study of autumn leaf phenology at six botanical gardens. Du shares many of our lab’s interests, including the effects of climate change on phenology and using herbarium specimens to investigate long-term phenology patterns.

Du is currently a visiting researcher at Yale University, so he joined us in Boston for a day of exchanging ideas and discussing current and future projects. I was particularly delighted to show Du one of our ongoing projects, in action, for which we are identifying the seeds from songbird fecal samples to identify what they are eating during autumn migration.

We look forward to our next visit and future collaborations with Du!
