Biology Student Presents Research at Warner Park Nature Center

davisBrielle Davis, a senior biology major, presented her senior research project, titled “Effect of Previous Experience and Habituation on the Anti-Predator Response in Elimia Snails,” to visitors at the Warner Park Nature Center on Saturday, Nov. 22.

The research is based on Davis’s work with organisms found in Beaman Park.  An extension of previous work in Davis’s faculty advisor Dr. John Niedzwiecki’s lab studying the chemical detection of predators by aquatic organisms, Davis and several other student’s studied the limits and subtleties of this type of detection. Other projects done on aquatic organisms from Beaman Park and the effects on native and invasive plants on detritivores found in Warner Park were also on display.
