Hobbs Lab Attends Recent Conferences

James Hobbs, Christina Parker, Malte Willmes and Arthur Barros attended State of the Estuary on October 10-11, 2017 and presented the following posters:

Longfin Smelt Distribution: Abundance and Evidence of Spawning in San Francisco Bay Tributaries

Deep in the shallows: Environmental variability and habitat use by native and invasive fishes in San Francisco’s saltmarsh complexes

Thermal resilience of Delta Smelt: What can we learn from otoliths? MW_SOE_2017

Christian Denney attended Northern California Computational Biology Symposium  on October 7, 2017 and presented the following poster:

Use of Discrete Wavelet Transformations to identify groups in otolith chemistry profiles

Western Division AFS meeting in Reno 2016

Hobbs lab attended the AFS Cal/Neva and Western Division Meeting in Reno, Nevada March 21st to 24th, 2016. We presented seven posters on our work on Delta and Longfin Smelt and Jim gave a talk on the long-term ecological response of native smelt in the San Francisco Estuary.

All lab members in attendance participated in a field trip to Pyramid Lake or attended continuing education classes on fish passages and R for biologists at the start of the conference.  Plenty of networking opportunities presented themselves through after conference social events including a trip to the Discovery Center and the Monster Fish Exhibit. Of course, no group trip is complete with out some group bonding. We took advantage of the sunshine on Sunday before the conference to go check out the snow and go for a hike at Mount Rose.
