SICB 2012, Charleston, SC

Tomorrow some of the lab will be traveling to Charleston, South Carolina for the annual Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology meeting. Several of us are presenting on various topics including the feeding kinematics of zooplanktivores, functional morphology of sticklebacks,  nocturnality limiting diversity in the eyes of reef fish, and patterns of diversity in suction feeding among serranid fishes. Below are the times, titles and location for our talks. I’m also including the information for some previous Wainwright lab members and links to the abstracts. Hope to see you there.

Evolution Meeting 2011, Norman, OK

A majority of the lab is presenting at the Evolution Meetings in Norman, OK this weekend.  Almost all of our talks use a group of fish as a model system (Labrids, Haemulids, pupfish, sticklebacks, Xiphophorus, and reef fish), but our topics are very broad;  including sexual selection, morphological diversity, ecological novelty, nocturnality, phylogenetic comparative methods and ecological speciation. Below is a list of our talks at the meeting. Bold indicates presenting author. Hope to see you there.
