The third annual Lab Crawl on November 18 featured the work of Associate Professor of Biology Roger Laushman and student collaborators. Laushman’s lab studies plant ecology, particularly forest changes resulting from the death of ash trees—a dominant canopy species—due to an invasive insect called the emerald ash borer. Laushman’s lab was among 30 spaces showcased during Lab Crawl, giving the campus community an opportunity to learn about the research conducted by faculty and students across a variety of disciplines.
