Pyron and Kitevski (in review) have shown that there is an asymmetry in the banding pattern of the banded killifish (Fundulus diaphanus) from Presque Isle Bay when compared to non-bay populations. They suggested embryo exposure to anthropogenic toxins as a possible causal agent of the asymmetry. We will test this theory by bringing samples from the three populations surveyed into the lab. Collections will be made following Pyron and Kitevski's localities at Presque Isle Bay, Seven Mile Creek, and Lake Pleasant.
