Israel Del Toro received two grants in June - $5000 from the National Geographic Society and $3500 from the Lewis and Clark Fund of the American Philosophical Society. Both awards will help Del Toro, along with REU student Adam Clark (Harvard '11) sample ants throughout northeastern North America this summer. Del Toro is a graduate student at the University of Massachusetts, where he is studying the impacts of climate change on distribution and range expansion of ants. His Ph.D. advisor is Harvard Forest Senior Ecologist Aaron Ellison.
