- My name is Theresa Laverty, and I am a postdoctoral fellow in Colorado State University's Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology. For my PhD, I studied the community ecology surrounding desert water sources in Namibia. More specifically, I examined how large mammalian herbivores, via their direct and indirect effects on vegetation and insect communities around rare, aboveground water bodies, could impact bat communities that prey on insects. My research took place along the ephemeral desert rivers of the northwest, where elephants, giraffe, black rhinos, and many smaller herbivores live among the livestock of traditional pastoralists. I hope you enjoy reading my posts from the field!
