Our June meeting will be a joint meeting with the Boston Guppy Club
We will be welcoming Stonehill College Associate Professor, Brownwyn Heather Bleakley, Phd. Bleakley comes to Stonehill from Smith College where she served as a lecturer in genetics (2009-10). Prior to that, she was a National Science Foundation (NSF) international research fellow based jointly at the Centre for Ecology and Conservation at University of Exeter, Cornwall and Northern Arizona University. Her teaching appointments have included stints at the University of Virginia, Indiana University, and the University of Arizona.
In 2007, Bleakley received the William J. Rowland Mentor of the Year and Outstanding Associate Instructor of the Year Awards at Indiana University. Bleakley’s research focuses on the evolutionary genetics of social behavior. She uses inbred and wild lines of guppies to explore how the genetic component of the social environment influences antipredator behavior and cooperation. She also uses invertebrates to understand the genetics of cannibalism and how social selection acts on cannibalism. She is planning projects exploring how genetic variation interacts with social organization to influence behavior. These projects were supported by the National Science Foundation and Animal Behavior Society.
Our meeting will also feature a sales table and raffles by the Boston Guppy Club.
Refreshments will be served. We will also be holding the Boston Aquarium Society Bowl Show and Monthly Auction.
Doors open at 8 PM
The meeting is free and open to the public.
