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!
Chase, D. A., Flynn, E. E. and Todgham, A. E. 2016. Survival, growth and stress response of juvenile tidewater goby, Eucyclogobius newberryi, to interspecific competition for food. Cons. Physiol. 4: cow013. DOI: 10.1093/conphys/cow013.
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.
Two new papers are hot off the presses featuring the master’s projects of lab alumni Daniel Chase and Christina Pasparakis. Dan’s first thesis chapter on the effects of interspecific competition on juvenile endangered tidewater goby (Eucyclogobius newberryi) was recently published in the Transactions of the American Fisheries Society (DOI: 10.1080/00028487.2015.1106420). Christina’s research on the seasonal effects of preliminary heat exposure on thermal tolerance of the fingered limpet (Lottia digitalis) was also just published in Marine Biology (doi:10.1007/s00227-015-2779-5).
