University of Notre Dame biologist Jeffrey Feder will lead a team of researchers funded by a new $2 million grant from the Dimensions of Biodiversity program of theNational Science Foundation (NSF) to examine how when one insect shifts its season it allows others to follow and generates new biodiversity.
