Summer is here!

Trai had a great time in Toronto at the ABS meeting. Margaret has started her project on mate choice in Guppies. And Ingo returned from Jamaica, where he surveyed freshwater habitats for Livebearing fishes with Kerri-Ann Bennett from the University of the West Indies. This is a great start for a wonderful collaboration.
