Graduate Students

Alex Hooks OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Alex is studying polyandry and sibling conflict, and how it varies between different environments, using observations and experiments on the Florida Crown Conch.

 

 

Jackson Powell

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Jackson is studying the limits to evolutionary rescue in marine invertebrates with complex life cycles.

 

 

 

 


Postdocs

Marília Bueno

Marília is empirically estimating 2D dispersal kernels for bryozoans in the field and studying how phenotypic and environmental factors alter the distance and spread of settlement from a known source.

 


Lab technician

Lisa Sander

Lisa does everything from molecular work, data collection, field work and boat tending, maintenance of aquariums and phytoplankton cultures, and general lab management.

 


Undergraduates

Zachary Zubek (Fall 2016 – Spring 2017)dsc_0036

Zack’s honors thesis looked at the patterns and consequences of inbreeding in Bugula neritina. He reared bryozoans in the lab to create deferentially inbred crosses, then compared larvae from parents in the different treatments to estimate  self-fertilization, bi-parental inbreeding, and inbreeding and outbreeding depression.
