Tamone and Students Present East to West
Work has interesting implications for cold-water adaptation.
Professor of Biology Sherry Tamone and her graduate student Molly Fox-Zaleski attended the Alaska Marine Science Symposium January 16-17 in Anchorage. Molly presented her graduate work on reproductive indices of male snow crab Chionoecetes opilio.
Tamone traveled to the annual Society of Integrative and Comparative Biology in Charleston, South Carolina earlier this month to present a poster on crab physiology research conducted in collaboration with two UAS undergraduates, Tyler Linderoth and Eric Keller. The results of their study, titled "The effect of eyestalk neurohormones on circulating glucose and trehalose in two species of cold water oregonid crabs", have some interesting implications for cold-water adaptation.
