Monday, September 9, 2013- guest Kelsey Jiang- how Three-spined stickleback select their habitat

30Sep

Guest Kelsey Jiang studies the habitat preference of Three-Spined Sticklebacks.  This ~2 inch fish is interesting because it shows a lot of morphologies based on its habitat.  Kelsey has developed a way to distinguish between lake- and stream- fish based on the way they swim in the direction of or against the current.  Kelsey is a graduate student in the Bolnick Lab at the University of Texas at Austin's School of Biological Sciences section on Integrative Biology.
