Our senior lab member Jake Burkhart gave a presentation entitled “Genetic Diversity of the Ringed Salamander (Ambystoma annulatum)” to the University of Missouri’s Division of biological sciences specialized seminar known proudly as Ecolunch. Ecolunch is a seminar series dedicated to graduate students in the division of biological sciences specializing in an Ecology based field.
Jake’s talk described the genetic diversity found in the ringed salamander, an endemic species to missouri and of conservation concern. His talk went great and had great interaction and questions at the end from the audience. Congratulations Jake!
