IB Grad Wins Presentation Award at International Conference



Kendall Scarlett won first place for her poster presentation at the 37th North American/7th World Congress meeting of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry in Orlando, Fl. Kendall's poster, "Development of a behavioral assay to test pesticide toxicity in amphibians" highlighted her recent research efforts. She is working to use changes in behavior, specifically prey-orentiation in Great Plains Toads, as an indicator of exposure to a toxin.  She tested whether toads consistently oriented towards or lost interest in presentation of a prey stimulus. Looking forward, she will use this technique to test pesticide toxicity in amphibians and other wildlife.  Congratulations Kendall!
