Fellowship Overview

Fellowship Name
Rogers Fellow in Environmental Studies

Baruch Institute for Marine and Coastal Studies
Columbia, SC

Aims of the Fellowship
I worked primarily in the salt marsh inter-tidal creek systems, the seawater wet lab and within the sorting lab, all part of the Hobcaw property. My project was to continue the work of a past graduate student on the level of site fidelity for Grass shrimp. In other words we were studying the tendency for these grass shrimps to return to the same inter-tidal creeks.
