Research from the Post Lab on alewife was highlighted in two recent articles in the New York Times.

Science writer Richard Conniff wrote an Op-Ed article for the New York Times on secondary contact between landlocked and anadromous alewife at Rogers Lake, CT. This National Science Foundation supported research is a collaboration among the Post and Caccone labs at Yale, the Palkovacs lab at UC Santa Cruz, and the CT DEEP

New York Times Science article highlights a new study published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B. The research by Magnus Huss and other members of the Post Lab shows that the different effects of alewife populations on zooplankton influences the morphology, growth and foraging behavior bluegill, which compete with alewife for zooplankton prey.
