Environmental Physiology in a Changing Climate

Month: June 2018

Lab outreach events a success!

This spring several Todgham lab members participated in three outreach events to share our research with the public. At the annual UC Davis campus open house, Picnic Day, we had a station all about sturgeon. We had both tiny 1 month old sturgeon to view and larger 11 month old sturgeon in a touch tank so guests could experience sturgeon up close. 

 

Lab members also visited two elementary schools. We had a station at Marguerite Montgomery Elementary School’s Science Expo here in Davis. Activities focused on the lab’s Antarctic research from current threats facing Antarctic fish and how we study physiology to the challenges of conducting research in Antarctica.

At Marion Mix Elementary in Elk Grove we visited a 6th grade classroom. We had a lot of fun teaching this enthusiastic class about salmon conservation, Antarctic fish physiology, and how we came to be graduate students.

 

 

Undergraduates awarded departmental scholarships

Two of our stellar undergraduates were awarded scholarships from the Department of Animal Science and honored at the Animal Science Spring BBQ. Lorenzo was awarded the Gary P.  Moberg Memorial Award and Gabi received the Elizabeth Graves Hosselkus Scholarship. Congratulations!
