Zoology graduates scooped a couple of prizes in the Graduate School of Life Sciences Poster and Images competition earlier this week keeping up our excellent record.


Ulrike Bauer (4th year PhD student with Walter Federle) was the winner in the 4th Year Phd/Post-Doc "whole Organisms" category for her poster entitled "Insect Aquaplaning: wetness-based activation of traps in Nepenthes pitcher plants." 

Matt Benton (1st year PhD student with Michael Akam) was runner-up in the image competition with his stunning image of a two day old cricket embryo that has been partially separated from its egg.

Warmest congratulations to both!
