Two of Moss Landing's own graduate students in the Invertebrate Ecology lab were awarded at the conclusion of the WSN 2022 conference this Sunday for the work they presented over the weekend!
Keenan Guillas was awarded the runner-up for best poster for the print of his work: "The bigger they are, the harder they sneeze: contraction behaviours in the temperate demosponge Tethya californiana". His poster will be hung in the hall for viewing.
Sydney McDermott was awarded Best Community Ecology Talk for her incredible presentation on the effect of lost shipping containers: "Colonization and succession on experimental natural and artificial substrates in the deep sea", for which she was awarded a cash prize of $250.
A huge congratulations to both of them for recognition of their work!
