Nick Luymes


Nick is a 4th year Integrated Science (ISci) Student.  He is doing his undergraduate thesis in ABEL.  Nick's research is about   the connection between resource density and reproductive success for plainfin midshipman, a singing toadfish. Nick is exploring the importance of the social neighbourhood surrounding a male territory  and how nest density impacts mate choice and male reproductive success. The natural variation in the density of plainfin midshipman nesting sites makes them an ideal model for exploring this connection between territory density and reproductive success.  Nick held an NSERC USRA and worked with Aneesh Bose in British Columbia during the summer of 2015.
