Congratulations are due to Ewan Isherwood, who successfully defended his MS thesis this morning at FIU! Ewan's research addresses the distinctness of vegetation communities (ridges and sloughs) in the Florida Everglades, with a particular focus on how these these distinct communities become more blended as a result of hydrologic modification and microtopographic flattening. To do this, Ewan developed statistical proxies of distinctness using multivariate techniques, and applied them across our Everglades-wide sampling regime.
