Evan Weiher co-authored a paper titled "Rebuilding Community Ecology from Functional Traits" with Brian McGill (McGill University), Brian Enquist (University of Arizona) and Mark Westoby (Macquarie University, New South Wales, Australia). The paper was published in the April issue of Trends in Ecology and Evolution, Vol. 21, pages 178-185. The paper is a synthesis of a symposium titled "A 'New' Paradigm for Community Ecology: Building From Functional Ecology" organized by McGill and Enquist at the 2004 annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America. Weiher also recently served as a panelist for the Division of Environmental Biology at the National Science Foundation in Arlington, Va. Panelists reviewed approximately 20 grant proposals, discussed their merits and made recommendations for funding to NSF program officers. Go to top of page

Sociology
Tarique Niazi recently received a grant from the Center for European Studies at UW-Madison to fund his research on Catalonian separatism in Spain. Niazi’s planned research seeks to build the contemporary trajectory of Catalonian separatism and its rise and fall since the Franco dictatorship. In particular, the research seeks to compare the strength of separatist forces under the Franco dictatorship on the one hand and their moderation under the democratically elected governments on the other. Niazi's research also will test the broader assumption that democracy (indigenously-grown) helps resolve putative ethnic conflicts, while dictatorship inflames them. Go to top of page
