Congratulations once AGAIN to Jer Pin for receiving a travel award to attend the Freshwater Mollusc Conservation Society meeting in St. Charles, Mo later this Spring.
Jer Pin Chong and I attended the bi-annual meeting of the Freshwater Mollusk Conservation Society in St. Charles, Missouri this past week. The meeting was well attended and there were a number of interesting talks.
Jer Pin presented some of his dissertation research comparing the genetic structure of two sister-species Leptodea fragilis and Leptodea leptodon and their fish-host, Aplodinotus grunniens. The talk was very well received, and Jer Pin received Honorable Mention for best student oral presentation at the meeting! Congratulations Jer Pin!
I assisted some colleagues with surveying for Texas hornshell mussels on the Rio Grande in September. It was a great trip overall and I was able to collect some samples of two species of interest for a future phylogeography project.
