La chance ne favorise que l’esprit préparé.Louis Pasteur
I am currently a PhD student at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland studying the evolutionary ecology of tadpole cannibalism in Dendrobates tinctorius with Bibiana Rojas and her group (the fantastic EBE Lab).
One of the most important challenges we face when working with animals is recognising who is who! Here, apply fluorescent elastomer tags to tadpoles (allowing us to distinguish individuals) and track tag condition across development.
Ever wonder about what makes animals from the same species eat each other? Ever imagine a father feeding his children to gasp, his other children?! Read an overview of cannibalism by clicking the button below.
