Abney Defends MSc

Congratulations to Curtis Abney, MSc for his successful defence today! His thesis on “Thermal ecology of eastern garter snakes in a southern Ontario peatland” was a joy to supervise, namely because Curtis did all the hard work. Always enthusiastic and willing to wade through tick-infested field sites, Curtis studied whether garter snakes make use of thermal cues to inform site selection in the field.

Thanks of course to Curtis’ committee members: Dr. Cheryl McCormick, Dr. Miriam Richards, Dr. Liette Vasseur and Dr. Njall Rollinson (External examiner from U of Toronto).

Curtis will be missed by all members of the lab as he moves back to BC aand takes the next big step in his scientific life.
