Sexual Selection in the Maritime Earwig

_DSC1093

This summer, I am part of the REU program at Friday Harbor Laboratories on San Juan Island in Washington. I am designing experiments under the direction of an animal behavior and entomology professor from Villanova University, VIkram Iyengar, to assess mate choice in the maritime earwig (Anisolabis maritima) with relation to body size and armaments. Currently, I am slowly working my way through 150 choice trials and 150 competition trials.
