Does adaptation to stable temperatures lead to a loss of physiological plasticity?🌑
In our new paper @PNASNews we explore this by comparing lab (150+ generations in stable conditions) and wild (fluctuating temperatures in nature) #zebrafish🐟1/7 pnas.org/doi/10.1073/pn…
We acclimated both lab and wild zebrafish to 15 different temperatures from 10-38 degrees for 35 days. 2/7
Then we measured a diverse range of traits spanning gene expression, behaviour and physiology. 3/7

Interested in the mechanisms parasites might use to manipulate their hosts' behavior? Check out talk #690 in the Host-Parasite Interactions session to hear about work from my amazing mentees @MSU_IBIO, including tweep @lizwphillips17!

Keep an eye out for these wonderful scientists, all either recently graduated or just about to. Looking forward to seeing what they're up to in the very near future! 2/n
Lucas Prasuhn scanned hundreds of #fish for parasites, self - teaching himself to identify them using pictures and references from the literature over a year. We worked on basic R skills and he went on to use them for complex diversity models in just a few months! #ABS2020 3/n ImageImage

Happy to be back in Sweden for my 2nd #BiologyofSperm meeting & hearing fascinating stories on evolution of sperm, gamete interactions, reproductive organs and strategies by fellow #spermnerds
#BoS2019 #BoS15
Started strong yesterday with Sabine Koelle showing us the very first live imaging movies of sperm behavior in human reproductive tracts, all the way to the fertilization site, and even sperm filmed live swimming inside the testes! What a cool talk!
Next @lross_evoento told us about (incomplete) paternal genome silencing in fascinating mealybugs. @emwhitti brought us to the amazing world of Post-Ejaculatory Modifications w/ impressive proteomics data from 1000s of #drosophila reproductive tract dissections. #BoS2019 #BoS15

2018 is the 61st year of long term ecological research in Burrishoole #BurrishooleLTER @MarineInst. I'm going to pin this tweet here and at the end of every month add some phenological happenings πŸŒΏπŸ›πŸ“ˆπŸŸπŸ’¦πŸ¦†πŸ¦‰πŸ¦‡πŸ•·πŸƒπŸŒΌπŸŒ™πŸŒβ„οΈ, including our main jobs. Stay tuned πŸ‘‡πŸΌ
@MarineInst This will coincide with our monthly staff meetings (last wed of each month) so I can get everyone's observations @FishEcoEvo @elizabethtray3 @B2020project
JANUARY: first snowdrops #phenology #burrishooleLTER
