Levin. Participants came to Princeton from New Zealand, Hawaii, Seattle, and Sweden on June 1st to discuss their work on social capital
New CBC Postdoctoral Research Fellows The Center for BioComplexity welcomes a new group of postdocs with a wide range of expertise and interests: Matthieu R. Barbier (Ph.D., Université Paris Sud) is working on bridging the gap between mathematical models and approaches from the social sciences, especially in problems of common-pool resources at the boundary of theoretical ecology and economics, with applications to fisheries. George I. Hagstrom (Ph.D., University of Texas,
CBC Researchers Receive Funding for Three New Collaborative Projects Simon Levin and James Watson (Stockholm Resilience Centre) were chosen by Princeton's Council for International Teaching and Research to receive a grant from the Princeton Global Collaborative Networks Fund.

Princeton researchers reported in Science that tropical savanna wildfires combined with climate conditions maintain the border between savannas and forests.
Levin was chosen for his fundamental contributions in theoretical ecology and for his ground-breaking research on integrating different scales in understanding ecological processes.
