FIU graduate student Beth Whitman starting her dissertation research on
hawksbill turtles.  She will be tagging their flippers using a small silver
tag with a unique identification code, so keep your eyes out for them.
This will help track movement and growth of the animals.  Lots more
from Beth coming soon.

About the Author:

Craig Layman
My lab’s interdisciplinary pursuits provide for a multi-faceted understanding of environmental change in the coastal realm. We are ecologists, asking questions that span population, community, ecosystem and evolutionary sub-disciplines. We often use a food web based perspective, exploring top-down (e.g., predation) and bottom-up (e.g., nutrient excretion) mechanisms by which animals affect ecosystem processes. All of our efforts are framed within a broader outreach framework, directly integrating science and education, using approaches such as this website.
