Hannah Vander Zanden - "Decoding animal migration and ecology from stable isotope records"
1:30 - 2:20p.m.
College of Natural Resources Room 10
Dr. Vander Zanden is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology and the Archie Carr Center for Sea Turtle Research at the University of Florida. She holds a B.A. from Pomona College and a Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of Florida. She also held postdoctoral appointments at the University of Utah and U.S. Geological Survey. Much of her work centers around characterizing how species use and interact with their environments. Many of her studies rely on stable isotope markers as tracers of migration and geographic history. These approaches are applicable to a broad range of organisms, and she has worked with sea turtles, birds, bats, and butterflies.
