Two new manuscripts published in 2019


Two papers from the lab have recently been accepted for publication. The first, “A blend of F prostaglandins functions as an attractive sex pheromone in silver carp” is the result of a collaboration with Dr. Peter Sorensen, Professor in the Department of Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology at the University of Minnesota, St. Paul. This paper provides multiple lines of evidence for a proof of concept that invasive Asian carp likely use spawning pheromones similar to those described in goldfish and common carp. The paper will be published in a special edition of Fishes dedicated to behavior. The second paper, “Juvenile convict cichlids shoaling decisions in relation to shoal size and age” will be published in Ethologyand is the result of an undergraduate research project led by Theresa Marlin ’16 and completed in collaboration with Dr. Jennifer Snekser at Long Island University – CW Post. Theresa will be starting her Ph.D. at Caltech this fall. Congratulations Theresa!
