Teresa Dzieweczynski, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Psychology, recently published an article in the journal Behavioural Processes. This article, “The Bachelorette: female Siamese fighting fish avoid males exposed to 17α-ethinylestradiol,” features an undergraduate co-author, Jessica Kane (Animal Behavior ’17).

This is the third publication for Kane, who was the 2017 Animal Behavior Student of the Year, a Goldwater Scholar honorable mention, and selected by the Council for Undergraduate Research (CUR) to present at Posters on the Hill in 2015. Kane is currently completing a M.S. in Geographic Information Systems at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.

This work is one of the first studies to find a behavioral mechanism for population collapse following exposure to a synthetic estrogen. The study was supported by a mini-grant from the Office of the Vice President of Research and Scholarship.
