      I am a first year graduate students, so i haven’t been studying my topics for long. I have been studying fear in insects for a two semesters. I do have some evidence. I have data on their growth, movement and feeding patterns.
      I just started working on plant communication through fungal networks this month. Ive just sprouted my plants, so it will be a few months before I get any evidence.

      I’ve been studying bat evolution for almost 4 years now. Every day I collect more evidence, either through studying their skulls or their DNA or some combination of other things.

      I’ve studied human evolution through examining the ribs of fossil human ancestors like Neandertals and of different modern human groups for almost 15 years! That means that I’ve been collected evidence (data) for quite a long time in order to test my hypotheses.

      I’ve JUST started studying issues of human-wildlife conflict between farmers and monkeys in South Africa starting a few months ago, so my data collection for that is mostly all ahead of me. I can’t wait to see what I find!
