[1/6] #Climatechange can affect #amphibians indirectly, but few studies look at changes in size or #morphology
For my MSc by research @DICE_Kent I’m deciphering crest growth in #GreatCrestedNewts at individual and population levels. 🐸🦎

[2/6]
Male #GCNs grow ornamental crests every year during aquatic breeding period.
As UK seasons become less distinct, #pond arrival times are less predictable.
So what is happening with #crest development?🧐

[3/6]
We photographed >100 individual #newts over 2 breeding periods and tracked changes in crest size + shape using #ImageJ software.

Does early arrival = Early growth peak?
Or ⬆ growth period i.e. potential mating advantage?

Thrilled to have my first paper published in @ScienceMagazine today. Thanks to my amazing co-author @foteini_pas!

We show how #Bumblebees make plants flower earlier - bumblebees are gardening!

2/17 #Bumblebees are excellent pollinators for many fruits and vegetables.

Unlike honey bees, bumblebees do not have a permanent colony. In autumn, each colony dies and only the young, mated queens hibernate, ready for spring when they start a new nest.
3/17 When the young queen emerges, she must rapidly establish a new nest. The failure rate of colonies is very high during early development, so having a succession of suitable flowers available is CRUCIAL.

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.
