As of August 2013 Teresa Krause will become lab manager at the Montana State University Paleoecology Lab. Teresa is working to finish her PhD dissertation, in which she investigates controls of ecosystem development during rapid environmental change, considering Yellowstone in the late-glacial and early Holocene periods.

Teresa is a scientist, educator and communicator extraordinaire. She has experience teaching at both high school and college levels. She is a fabulous person and brilliant paleoecological thinker who will serve the lab well.
Caitlyn Florentine is off to Missoula to start a PhD with Joel Harper and his glaciology research group. She will be studying glacial dynamics of the Greenland ice sheet and hopes to incorporate some Montana-based themes into her dissertation research as well.

Florentine is really gonna miss the gang and the good times with the Paleoecology bunch, but she knows she is leaving the lab in good hands. Go get 'em T!
