Students present zebra mussel research


Two Emporia State graduate students in the biology department presented findings of their separate research into zebra mussels during the 59th Annual Meeting of the Southwestern Association of Naturalists.

Skyler Delmott of Emporia and Benjamin Smith of DeSoto both earned travel awards from the organization to help pay expenses to attend the conference April 19-22 at Universidad Autonoma del Estado de Mexico in Valle de Bravo, Mexico.

Both Delmott and Smith conducted their research under the direction of Dr. David Edds, a biology professor who co-authored their papers.
