A new “sticky” Campus as a Living Laboratory project will enable CSFS researchers Drs. Juli Carrillo and Quentin Geissmann to monitor insects in real-time, on a scale never done before.
“This project promises to help us understand insect biodiversity, which we know is both crucial to ecosystems, and affected by human activities,” says Juli Carrillo, CSFS Associate and Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Land and Food Systems, and lead researcher of the Digital Detection Web for On-Campus Insects project.
