THE BIODIVERSITY & BEHAVIOUR GROUP
This semi-naturalistic experiment is part of a project we are conducting in collaboration with Dr Doug Fraser (Siena College).
We are interested to see how the presence of heterospecifics affects the colonisation ability of guppies.
In this case the heterospecific we are using is a native killifish (Aneblepsoides hartii, formally known as Rivulus hartii).
This experiment uses large garden containers as mesocosms (see right) and is based at the William Beebe Tropical Research Station (Simla) in the beautiful Arima Valley of Trinidad.
