Congrats to Connor and Loy for publishing their paper Plant-pollinator interaction niche broadens in response to severe drought perturbations in Oecologia! They worked on this paper with fellow RMBLers Kelly Endres (a Brosi Lab alum), Amy Iler, Paul CaraDonna, Heather Briggs, Devon Picklum, and billy barr. Their paper uses a long-term dataset of floral visitation to Ipomopsis aggregata to test whether the breadth of its floral visitation niche changed in response to naturally occurring drought perturbations. They found that niche breadth significantly increased in drought years as compared to non-drought conditions, but there were no statistically distinguishable changes in community composition of flower visitors.
