Austin Peay State University field biology grad student Zac Wolf earns grant award for research

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – In a tributary of Tennessee’s Duck River, there lives a small fish that seems to have mastered the art of seduction. Because the females of the species prefer strong fathers, males use small yellow knobs on their fins that look like eggs to lure potential mates.

“It will fool the female into thinking he has more eggs than he really does, and she’ll spawn with him,” Zac Wolf, an Austin Peay State University graduate student, said. “It’s been shown that females prefer larger nests, or at least males with larger nests.”
