Imran Razik

IMAG0109

Imran joined the lab in 2015. He has participated in multiple research projects including behavioral responses to the presence of predators, and foraging ecology of the Southern flying squirrel. Imran travelled to Costa Rica to collaborate on a project understanding the importance of vocal roles in foraging efficiency. Currently, he is looking at the effects of seasonality on the foraging patterns of the North American beaver (Castor canadensis) at Rice Creek Field Station, as part of is honors thesis. He will be joining Gerry Carter’s lab at Ohio State University in the Fall 2018.

 

 

Cayla Turner

Cayla joined the lab in the Summer 2017. She travelled to Costa Rica to study energetics of vocal roles in the Spinx’s disc-winged bat. Currently, she is working on the echolocation of Spinx’s disc-winged bats when foraging in groups vs solitary.

 

 

 

Tenaja Smith-Butler

Tenaja joined the lab in the Summer 2017. She travelled to Costa Rica to study energetics of vocal roles in the Spinx’s disc-winged bat. She is currently working on bat ecosystem services in apple orchards in the Oswego region.

 

 

 

 

Kervans Lerouge

FullSizeRender (2) (1) Kervans joined the lab in the Fall 2017, as an honors student. He is studying the effects of temperature and day-length on the foraging movements and home range of the Southern flying squirrel (Glaucomys volans).

Anthony joined the lab in 2015. He collaborated studying individual behavioral responses to the presence of predators. Anthony studied the effects of adult sex ratio on same sex courtship behavior as part of his individual research. He graduated in the Spring 2017.  He will be joining Dr. Fowler-Finn lab at Saint Louis University in the Fall 2018.
