Noah Bressman

Reffling: a novel locomotor behavior used by Neotropical armored catfishes (Loricariidae) in terrestrial environments.

Armored catfishes (Loricariidae) are known to exhibit terrestrial behaviors, but these have been poorly described. The goals of this study are to describe (1) the terrestrial locomotion of 4 loricariid species (3 Pterigoplichthys, 1 Hypostomus), (2) how their armored morphology may affect terrestrial locomotion, and (3) how behavior, performance, and kinematics relate to species and endurance. Insights to this study will be presented. 


Kenjiro (Kenji) Quides

Using Molecular Markers to Track Rhizobial Symbionts throught Space and Time

Legumes, such as beans and peas, are well known for their agronomic importance, but their symbiosis with soil dwelling rhizobial bacteria also serve as a model to study the evolution of species interactions. The  presentation will describe the methodology used to track the genotypes of rhizobial bacteria.
