Congratulations to Zhuoyan Song on his Ph.D. defence!

 

Zhuoyan successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis “Disentangling a freshwater amphipod–acanthocephalan system from ecological and molecular perspectives” on 29 Nov 2018. To disentangle the system he dissected more than 80,000 Gammarus lacustris from water bodies in and near Edmonton to assess prevalence of Polymorphus spp. acanthocephalans (the red blobs in the amphipods below).
