Two firsts


This has been a very important week for The 3D Lab: two of our PhD-students submitted their first ever paper!

Charly submitted his work on the climatic origin of urban plant invaders, a first in a series studying how the urban heat island effect promotes the expansion of warm-loving aliens.

Jan submitted his study on the role of mycorrhizal fungi as drivers of plant invasions along mountain roads in the northern Scandes, again a first step on our road to a better understanding of how these fungal friends can affect plant species distribution changes.

Great job, both of you!
