A big congratulations to PhD student Jack Hollins, who was recently awarded a grant from the NERC Life Sciences Mass Spectrometry Facility for his project entitled “The relationships among physiological traits, intraspecific niche variation, and susceptibility to capture by different fishing gears”. Among other things Jack will be using stable isotope analysis to understand differences in behaviour and physiology of individual fish within species.

Recently we welcomed Mar Pineda to our lab group. Mar is a placement student from the University of Manchester and will be with us for the net 9 months. During this time she will be studying how temperature affects the spatial positioning of individual fish within swimming schools. Welcome Mar!
Last week biologists from all over the globe descended upon Brighton in the UK for the annual meeting of the Society for Experimental Biology. As always the conference was jammed with incredible talks and was a great chance to catch up with old friends.
Our Institute at the University of Glasgow was particularly well-represented with a contingent of 14 staff and students in attendance. This included several talks and posters from the Killen lab and collaborators as well as a highly successful session organised by Shaun Killen and Stefano Marras on The Role of Individual Variation in the Behaviour of Animal Groups. We're already looking forward to next year in Gothenberg, Sweden!
