Happy St. Pismo Publication Day! Alex publishes her first paper from her thesis on Pismo clam reproduction and age
Former grad student Alex Marquardt pubbed her first chapter from her thesis today! This paper looked at age, growth, and reproduction for Pismo clams on Pismo Beach, providing the first updates of the life history of this iconic species in more than half a century. Former undergraduates Noel Clark, Ellie Maietta, and Sara Park made substantial contributions in the lab (and through great senior projects). Congrats to the whole team!

Well, we're a collection of science-minded marine misfits. But we're always up to something...
