Congratulations to Laura for getting her PhD chapter entitled ‘Austropuccinia psidii on the move: survey based insights to its geographical distribution, host species, impacts and management in Australia’ published in Biological Invasions. Great effort! Check it out here-http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10530-018-1891-0
PIREL had a cheeky lunch today to celebrate Guyo submitting his thesis and Dr Samiya having her thesis accepted. Big times!
Congratulations Laura on winning the 3rd place prize for your poster at ESA 2018 in Brisbane. It enlightened everyone at the conference on the community-level impacts of myrtle rust on Australian vegetation communities.
Another day, another PIRELer submits. This time it was Laura’s turn to submit her PhD thesis entitled ‘Impacts of the invasive pathogen Austropuccinia psidii (myrtle rust) on Australian native communities.’ Congratulations on a magnificent effort Laura!
Congratulations to Samiya on submitting her PhD thesis entitled ‘Living on the edge: ecological and evolutionary mechanisms of range expansion in invasive species.’ She will now have a relaxing 48hrs eating the chocolates she got for submitting before coming to work on Monday morning.
P.S. How fashionable do the PIREL gang look (even without the fashionisto of the lab Guyo present)? This photo could’ve been taken at Milan fashion week.
Congratulations to Guyo on getting the first chapter from his PhD published in Aquatic Botany. It’s called ‘do invasive exotic and native plant species respond similarly to low additional nitrate doses?’ and can be viewed using the link below.
Congratulations to Laura and the myrtle rust team on winning the Chairman’s Award at the recent Plant Biosecurity CRC Awards in Melbourne. The awards recognises outstanding contributions to Australian plant biosecurity science. Check out the link below for more info.
