The Seminar Series in Biology presents:
“Taking Care of Business with Bullies in the Hood: Breeding interactions between and within two syntopic species of ranid frogs, Rana clamitans and R. catesbeiana,” by Susan Herrick, Ph.D., University of Connecticut. Dr. Herrick is a herpetologist and behavioral ecologist. Her research is focused on behavioral interactions between species, particularly in light of reproductive strategies. Dr. Herrick also teaches foundational biology courses to majors and is actively involved in exploring and improvising new teaching methods for large-enrollment courses as well as writing-intensive courses. In this presentation, she will discuss portions of her dissertation research on breeding ecology and behavior of ranid frogs in New England.
This seminar is hosted by the Biology Department and will take place 4 pm Friday March 17th in Science I room 121.
About this seminar series: This series is offered several times throughout the semester to provide our student community with opportunities to learn about scientific research and professions. Speakers may include our own department faculty or students, as well as biologists and other professionals from elsewhere. All are welcome.
