CIEE Tropical Ecology + Conservation Alumni Publish Paper in Journal of Insect Behavior

Two alumni of CIEE's Tropical Ecology + Conservation program in Monteverde, Costa Rica had their independent research projects on dung beetles published in the Journal of Insect Behavior last month.

While in Monteverde, Martha Cummings (Fall 2015) from Department of Biology, University of Puget Sound, and Haley Evans (Spring 2018), Department of Environmental Studies, University of Colorado at Boulder examined how male dung beetles with big and small horns have different mating strategies. Their research was combined for the paper entitled "Male Horn Dimorphism and its Function in the Neotropical Dung Beetle Sulcophanaeus velutinus".
