Martin A Simonson, PhD Candidate

Martin Simonson is a Biologist based at the Great Lakes Science Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan

Martin's current position at the USGS Great Lakes Science Center involves testing whether or not Cisco (aka Lake Herring) aerobic scope and thermal tolerance differs among two populations of Cisco. One population is from northern Lake Huron whereas the other population is from a small inland lake in northern Indiana. Our hypothesis is that the southern population has been exposed to more thermal pressures and will be better adapted to warmer water temperatures compared to the northern population.
