Do rainbows count as biodiversity? Iguazu Falls, Argentina. PC Rebecca Stubbs
Welcome to the University of Florida Biodiversity Institute blog page, currently managed by the 2016-17 UFBI Graduate Research Fellows. We plan to post weekly throughout the year about current biodiversity related research, news, and facts. We will highlight events happening at University of Florida, but we are interested in biodiversity worldwide! Therefore, we are also happy to host guest bloggers, so please get in touch with one of the fellows if you would like us to cover your biodiversity results or host your post. Have a great, biodiverse day!
