Congratulations to Georgina, who has just one the best talk prize at SCAB (Scottish Conference on Animal Behaviour), held this year on home turf. Georgina was talking about her work on context-dependent decision-making in Nasonia – more on that soon! Georgina was lucky enough to win a fantastic book (Shuker & Simmons 2014) thanks to a kind donation from OUP. Happy reading!
And honorable mention to Liam, who was one of the runners-up. Nice one team.
Ginny’s poster on her work on the repeatability of mating failure has won a Highly Commended Prize at the ASAB Easter Meeting, held last week in Durham. Well done again Ginny!
Vicki Balfour has been awarded an ASAB Undergraduate Project Scholarship to work with us over the summer. Her project is called Can female seed bugs choose to avoid mating failure? and will explore how pre- and post-copulatory sexual selection interact in Lygaeus seed bugs, in collaboration with Ginny. We look forward to welcoming Vicki back into the lab soon.
