NWAEP is pleased to present our second in a series of thesis presentations this month featuring Jeffrey P. Vanderpham, PhD. Dr. Vanderpham will be presenting on his recent research conducted for the University of Otago’s Aquatic Ecology Program in New Zealand regarding “Habitat-Related Morphological and Behavioral Variation in New Zealand Generalist and Specialist Freshwater Fish.”

Within-species morphological and behavioral variation is hugely variable, and may play a role in determining the range of habitats a species can exploit. The findings of this research are valuable to future conservation of two widely distributed, but poorly understood species, as well as having broader implications for understanding generalist and specialist habitat-interactions. Dr. Vanderpham currently holds a Ph.D. in Ecology and has experience working in the public, private, and academic sectors, offering a diverse background in environmental consulting and ecological research.
