Presque Isle Bay Toxicants: A Possible Cause of Asymmetry in Fundulus diaphanus

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.
