Jessica, Kaitlin, and Eric attended this year’s IBS meeting in Bayreuth, Germany to present posters on various research projects. Kaitlin’s poster, entitled “Community level models outperform traditional species distribution models in no analog climates” won the award for best early career poster. Her co-authors were: Jessica Blois, Diego Nieto-Lugilde and Matt Fitzpatrick from the Appalachian Laboratory, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, and Jack Williams from University of Wisconsin-Madison. Unfortunately we cannot post a picture of the entire poster right now, but here is one of the figures comparing CLMs to SDMs.
