Tim Welch narrates audio book

Tim Welch, full-time Lecturer in Communications and Media, has produced a nearly 13-hour audio book called Command Failure in War.  The book was originally written by two professors at the University of Indiana, one a historian and the other a psychologist.

The work looks at eight famous military disasters and seeks to describe mental flaws that might have caused the commanders to commit tactical blunders.

Welch has 32 other audiobooks for sale on Audible.com and iTunes. If anyone in the Oneonta college community would like to sample and review any of these works, Welch, as the producer, can provide the listener with a free download code.

Florian Reyda has article published with SUNY Oneonta students and collaborator

Dr. Florian Reyda, Professor and Researcher, Biology Department and Biological Field Station, recently published an article titled, “Two new species of Stillabothrium (Cestoda: Rhinebothriidea) from stingrays of the genus Fontitrygon from Senegal” It was published in the current issue of Folia Parasitologica. The article is open access and available at https://folia.paru.cas.cz/artkey/fol-201801-0014_two_new_species_of_stillabothrium_cestoda_rhinebothriidea_from_stingrays_of_the_genus_fontitrygon_from_seneg.php

In the article, the authors describe two new species of tapeworms from stingrays from the coast of Senegal. They also provide a phylogenetic hypothesis (i.e., an evolutionary history) for all nine species of the genus Stillabothrium. The two student coauthors are Elsie Dedrick (Class of 2016) and Elise Iwanyckyj (Class of 2017). In both cases, students picked the names of the new species. This study is part of a series of studies by Reyda and collaborators as an attempt to further document biodiversity of animal parasites. 

This work was supported by a collaborative National Science Foundation grant of which Reyda was a participant, as well as several student research grants provided by the SUNY Oneonta research foundation.

Florian Reyda presents at workshop in Slovakia

Last week, Florian Reyda, Biology and Biological Field Station, traveled to Stará Lesná, Slovakia to participate in the 9th International Workshop on Acanthocephala. Acanthocephala are a group of parasitic worms also known as the thorny-headed worms. These workshops occur every four years.

At the workshop, Reyda delivered an invited presentation titled “An integrated taxonomic approach to understanding species diversity of fish-parasitizing Neoechinorhynchus species.” The presentation highlighted work Reyda has done with several of his students in New York and elsewhere in the USA.
