Earlier this month several members of the lab converged on Florence, Italy, for the annual meeting of the Society for Experimental Biology. As always with the SEB, it was an incredibly fun conference packed with amazing and inspiring talks.

Lucy Cotgrove talking about the effects of metabolism and temperature on behaviour of fish schools.

Tiff Travels to Galway

At the Euro Evo Devo conference in Galway, Ireland (26-29 of June), Tiff gave an oral presentation on how maternal mouthbrooding contributes to the development of craniofacial shape in four species of African cichlids. Despite some technical difficulties (her talk got lost!), and some intense heat, the talk went over well and she received some useful suggestions for future analysis.
