Sarah Tucker ’13 from Indonesia

A Fulbright grant took Sarah Tucker ’13 to Indonesia to study biology with a research proposal to study small-scale fishing communities. Last month, Tucker’s research with Eka M. Kurniasih and Matthew T. Craig, on a newly discovered species of grouper, was published in the internationally regarded journal Copeia. Copeia is known for its publication of original research on fish, amphibians, and reptiles.

More information on Tucker’s article, “A New Species of Grouper (Epinephelus; Epinephelidae) from the Indo-Pacific”, may be found here via the American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists.

The Fellowships Program extends sincerest congratulations to Sarah Tucker on her remarkable achievements.
