On Monday, Rob gave an invited talk at the Biological Colloquium of the Institute of Zoology, University of Bonn, Germany. He summarised our results of analysing almost 50 thousands butterflies and moths recorded during our sampling along the altitudinal gradient of Mount Cameroon between 2014 and 2017. Vincent and Sylvain, the two PhD students currently responsible for the analyses, helped with the talk preparation crucially. Altogether, it was for the first time we put all the data and results together into some concise synthesis. Simultaneously, Rob met our friend and collaborator Marianne Espeland from the Zoological Research Museum Alexander Koenig, and together discussed progress on various projects.
