Grads got grants!
Sue King and Rob Denton, members of the MECA lab, received a $1000 Northern Kentucky Fly Fishers Scholarship for aquatic ecosystem conservation and education. These funds will help support their research on amphibians in natural and constructed wetlands. Sue also recently received a third grant-- 2011 Gaige Award from the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists in the amount of $500.
