The ATKAPPS Exchange
The second annual ATKAPPS Exchange was held at the University of Georgia in the fall of 2016. During the exchange, members of the Atkinson Lab of the University of Alabama and the Capps Lab of the University of Georgia met in Athens and explored what it is like to be in an aquatic ecology laboratory at a different institution. We visited Panther Creek with visiting scholars from El Colegio de la Frontera Sur in Mexico and the University of Southern Mississippi. The Exchange was a time for a celebration of freshwater ecology and an exploration of what it means to be a freshwater scientist in the southeast. In future years, we hope to involve more early-career freshwater scientists from the southeastern US in the exchange. Please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Krista Capps or Dr. Carla Atkinson with questions. The Exchange will be hosted by the Atkinson Lab at Bama in Fall 2017. Roll Dawgs!
