Personality, Individuality, and the Social Behaviour of Bats
Caleb Ryan is a PhD student at the University of Waterloo studying the social biology of bats. Caleb’s research takes an interdisciplinary approach to studying animal behaviour by bridging gaps between psychology, sociology, and ecology.
In his work, Caleb seeks to understand how individual animals are different from one another and how these differences impact the way they live their lives.

The Road Salt Problem: A Policy Conundrum
Presented by Norman Yan and Neil Hutchinson, from the Friends of the Muskoka Watershed. Each year In Muskoka, we add about a tonne of salt to our roads for every permanent resident. There are consequences as a result of road salt pollution.
Drs. Yan and Hutchinson will review the water quality threats posed by road salt, and demonstrate that levels of chloride are already high enough in some lakes to be damaging entire aquatic communities. They will review the Friends of the Muskoka Watershed's work to identify the sources of that chloride in Lake Muskoka.
December 17th, 8:00am - 5pm EST
