 This coming lab-meeting next week, we will listen to an informal presentation on poison dart frogs and colour polymorphism by visiting student Beatriz Willink, who will soon hopefully join the EXEB-lab as a new PhD-student. Beatriz has done a three-years Master's in Costa Rica, and is an experienced field biologist. Some of Beatriz work has been published in Evolution, Evolutionary Ecology and Behavioural Ecology and Sociobology, and you can follow these links if you want to take a look at her papers.

The title of Beatriz talk is:

"Not everything is black and white: Multiple predators and predator-avoidance strategies in a polytypic poison frog"

 Time and place:

When: Tuesday, April  22, at 10.30
Where: "Darwin Room", 2nd floor, Ecology Building

Any fika volunteer?
