New Zealand Mud Snails

Seminar | April 23 | 9-9:30 a.m. | Barrows Hall, Radio broadcast, ON-AIR ONLY, 90.7 FM

 Emily King, PhD Candidate, Department of Integrative Biology; Andrew Saintsing, PhD Student, Department of Integrative Biology

 KALX 90.7 FM

Tune in to The Graduates this Tuesday for an interview with Emily King from the Department of Integrative Biology at UC Berkeley. Emily is a PhD candidate whose research is focused on the New Zealand mud snail. She wants to understand the features that have allowed this small animal to flourish across a wide range of habitats here in the western United States. While your gut reaction may be to write these mud snails off as invasive species that need to be eradicated, Emily also offers some insight into the complexity involved in understanding and managing invasive species.

The Graduates, featuring graduate student research at Cal, is broadcast every other Tuesday on KALX 90.7 FM. Past episodes are available to listen and download free on iTunes or online. This episode of The Graduates is hosted by Andrew Saintsing, a PhD student in the Department of Integrative Biology.
