Continuing the popular tradition of having graduate students from Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN) share their research with us at Nature Newfoundland and Labrador, we’ll hear from three passionate science graduate researchers about their work on creatures of the air, land, and sea.
Air: Leanne Guzzwell, M.Sc. candidate, will discuss her research on the breeding patterns and sometimes puzzling behaviours of Northern Gannets of Cape St. Mary’s.
Land: Quinn Webber, Ph.D. candidate, will tell us about the social behaviour and spatial ecology of the woodland caribou in Newfoundland, with a special focus on the Fogo Island herd.
Sea: Justine Ammendolia, recent M.Sc., will explain how (and why) she used million dollar high pressure tanks to successfully create a deep sea environment inside a laboratory.
Thursday, February 16th, 2017, at 7:30 pm at the MUN Science Building, Room SN 2067, St. John’s NL. Parking available at Lot 15B (by the Music School), carpooling encouraged. All welcome!
