Colby, Kevin and Meghan participate in the GEEB symposium

The Bell lab was well-represented at the 23rd Annual GEEB Symposium.

  • Colby gave a great talk about divergence in courtship behavior between whites and commons.
  • Kevin showed that behavioral differences between whites and commons emerge early in life: juvenile whites are more active and bold and appear to shoal less than commons. And Kevin took home TWO awards — Best Pre-Prelim Talk, and Best Overall (shared with Kira Long). Congratulations, Kevin!
  • Meghan presented a poster showing that orphans are less cautious than father-reared juveniles. Does that suggest that whites are more bold because they don’t receive care? Stay tuned….
