The Powers lab attended the North American Ornithological Conference (NAOC) in Washington, DC August 16-21. While no current research students attended the conference, oral presentations were given by Dr. Powers, Anusha Shankar, and former Powers Lab student Rosey Elting. Dr. Powers presented a paper on heat dissipation during hovering in hummingbirds. Anusha Shankar, a Ph.D. student at Stony Brook University who has been working with the Powers Lab, presented a paper on hummingbird use of torpor at high nighttime temperatures. Her presentation included data collected as part of Lab’s NASA grant. Rosey Elting, a recent GFU graduate, presented her work on maximal feeding rates in hummingbirds. This work was done while a research student in the Powers Lab.
