    PHD student awarded NSF fellowship for summer work in Australia

    J.P. Lawrence (Noonan Lab) is the recipient of a National Science Foundation East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes Fellowship for summer 2015. J.P. will spend the summer working on the Australian Brood Frogs (Pseudophryne) to better understand the purpose of the variety of color signals found in this genus. His work will help him discern how predators view and select particular colors that may promote or constrain their evolution. This is the first EAPSI Fellowship awarded to a member of the University of Mississippi Biology Department.
