PhD student Erin Flynn received a Jastro Shields research award from the College of Agriculture and Environmental Studies for her Antarctic studies exploring impacts of global climate change on Antarctic dragonfish eggs. Erin also was awarded a fellowship for next year from the Graduate Group of Ecology at UC Davis.

Congratulations Erin!

New Publication! California Estuarine Fishes: Food and Competition

Dan’s second chapter of his Master’s project is now available at Conservation Physiology. His work shows how food limitation interplays with competition between the endangered tidewater goby (pictured above, held by Dan) and either a native (threespine stickleback) or an introduced species (rainwater killifish). Read about it at Conservation Physiology or under Publications!

Todgham lab students present at UC Davis undergraduate conference

Brigitte Clark (L) and Alexandra Resnick (R) presented their research at the 27th Annual Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Activities Conference (link). Brigitte shared her work on identifying ploidy (genome duplication) in white sturgeon while Alex discussed her research on the effects of climate change on the behavior of juvenile Antarctic fish.

PistenBully, Antarctica, Ross Sea

Britt’s first Antarctic paper in now available in the Journal of Experimental Biology! Read about her study looking at the effects of ocean acidification on a juvenile Antarctic fish (the emerald rockcod, Trematomus bernacchii) on the JEB website or under Publications.
