New Hawksbill Project

A BBC story on an important hawksbill nesting location in Antigua.  Timely, as we have just accepted a new student, Andrew Maurer, into the NCSU graduate program.  Andrew will conduct his field work at this site, looking at factors that affect nesting success in hawksbills.  Some of the hawksbills that take up residence in The Bahamas, may well have come from this nesting site in Antigua.  Lots more to come on his project.

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.
