First time publication for one of our Undergrad Hns. Thesis students!

Paper title in the journal

Rooney Lab is proud to have published a new note in the Journal of Freshwater Ecology titled "Wetland microhabitats support distinct communities of aquatic macroinvertebrates."  What makes us so proud of this one is that it is based on the Undergraduate Hns. thesis work of Jaimie Bortolotti who collaborated with former MSc. student Jennifer Gleason to turn her thesis into a manuscript.  Jaimie is now an MSc. student at Queens - congratulations Jaimie and good luck with that NSERC application!

We are the champions!

Rooney Lab defends their title as door decorating champions in 2017 against fierce competition!

This year our design traced the environmental drivers (namely pumpkin spice pollution) leading to the increased expression of the XMAS gene and resulting increase in Christmas Morph relative abundance in the fir tree population.  As you'd expect, there were bottom-up effects on the squirrel population.  Very scientific.
