Today was poster day, and boy did these posters look great!
The undergraduates in our lab explained their exciting
new discoveries to the broader UCLA community.
Proximate mechanisms mediating life history trade-offs in
facultatively social yellow-bellied marmots
Yellow-bellied marmot call structure is heritable
Ontogeny of social partner choice in free-living yellow-bellied marmots
Does serotonin modulate social interactions in hermit crabs?
And, last but not least, the "killer" title,
"The Omnivore's dilemma: diet explains variation in roadkill mortality"
By Taylor Cook
There were also members from Barney Schlinger's lab presenting on their research on hormones and genetics in song birds.
Lots of good questions were asked and new insights were gained...
Lawrance's poster provoked a lot of positive (affiliative)
social interactions within his social group...
But, alas, all good things must come to an end and the poster's came down. Luckily, the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology will have its own showing of these posters tomorrow, so be sure to stop by the Fifteenth Annual Biology Research Symposium - Wednesday, May 16, 2012, at 1:00 - 4:00PM at the UCLA Faculty Center...See you there!
