Juneau Biology Faculty and Assistant Host Sculpin Rodeo
Understand rapid adaptation of species to habitats influenced by global warming.
Last November, Biology 105 and 482 students got into Auke Creek with biology faculty David Tallmon and UAS IPY post-doc Andrew Whiteley to capture freshwater sculpins. The goal of this ongoing project is to understand rapid adaptation of species to habitats influenced by global warming. We all had fun, stayed reasonably dry, and captured over 300 fish that were measured, marked, and released so that we can track them over time. More sculpin rodeos are sure to follow this spring.
