Event Dates:

CRP Biologist, Dr. Joe Pfaller, and collaborators from the University of Florida published their research in the journal, Ecology and Evolution. This article is the final product from Joe's Ph.D. Dissertation and gives science the first in-depth look at how hitching rides on oceanic flotsam and sea turtles can influence the species diversity and population differentiation of rafting crabs.

Funding for this research was provided by the PADI Foundation, Sigma Xi, Society of Integrative and Comparative Biology and University of Florida.
