Austin Peay State University Biology Grad Students continue to excel in their Research

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Since about 1950, the small-scale darter—a tiny fish that lives in tributaries of the Cumberland River—has existed in relative obscurity. Few scientists have heard of the darter or checked to see if the fish is in danger of disappearing.

But for the last year and a half, Joshua Stonecipher, a graduate student with the Austin Peay State University Center of Excellence for Field Biology, has waded into local streams, trying to get an accurate estimate of the darter’s population size.

APSU Field Biology graduate student Joshua Stonecipher has received three grants to study the darter fish that lives in tributaries of the Cumberland River.
