Distribution of industrial contamination in a bay system

Hi science enthusiasts! In the throws of my postdoctoral fellowship I’ve had little time to write here, but I’ve stumbled upon a necessary occasion – new paper is out! So as some of you might know, my work focuses on understanding rapid adaptation to extreme environments. Part of this work involves understanding how populations adapt by looking at divergent phenotypes, heritability and fitness-costs. Another large … Continue reading Distribution of industrial contamination in a bay system

New study out – Biomarkers of exposure and effect in tree swallow at areas of concern in the Great Lakes

Hi all, We just published a study in Ecotoxicology that has been ongoing for years. Here we are interested understanding the effect of repeated exposure to contamination during sensitive stages of development during multiple generations. Such exposure could potentially affect the proper development and thus extend to potential population-wide outcomes. In the great lakes we observe this with the exposure and effects of persistent, bioaccumulative … Continue reading New study out – Biomarkers of exposure and effect in tree swallow at areas of concern in the Great Lakes
