Did you ever wonder what happens to the river herring larvae in our freshwater ponds? What are the factors that
determine their growth and eventual emigration?
Dr. Joel Llopiz,Dept.of Biology, Woods Hole OceanographicInstitute
The research of the Llopiz lab is generally focused on how fish and fish larvae interact with their environment, particularly what they feed on and how well they are feeding, as well as what environmental factors influence
these two variables.
His presentation is entitled: "Early life stages of river herring from contrasting freshwater environments."
