Jonika Edgecombe

 jonikaJonika is supervised by Dr. Helen Taylor, and will be examining sperm morphology in source and translocated (bottleneck) populations of South Island robins (Petroica australis), using light microscopy and Image J software. She will then compare the sperm quality between the populations using a Bayesian MCMCglm analysis via R statistical software. In combination with Helen's data, this will contribute to understanding the relationship between innbreeding and male fertility.
