Consider the three-spined stickleback, (Gasterosteus aculeatus), a small fish measuring about four to six centimeters, that is widely found throughout the northern hemisphere. This summer, Rachel Bowes ’11, one of several OWU students who is part of zoology professor Shala Hankison’s animal behavior laboratory, is conducting research on “Repeatability and Consistency in the Three-spined Stickelback.” These fish were chosen for this research because, as Bowes explains, they exhibit relatively easily quantified behaviors, and are easy to keep in captivity.
