UWindsor grad Stan Yavno (BSH 2008, MSc 2010) was recently awarded the third annual Arnold Berliner award from the international journal The Science of Nature (formerly Naturwissenschaften), for best research article published in the previous calendar year.
Dr. Yavno received the award for his doctoral research on the morphological plasticity of native and non-native pumpkinseed sunfish.
While at UWindsor, Yavno worked with supervisor Lynda Corkum to study behavioural responses of the Round Goby to fish egg odours in an effort to control the invasive fish.
After completing his Masters at UWindsor, Yavno went to Trent University where he earned his Ph.D.
“Stan is successful because he enjoys every aspect of research,” says Dr. Corkum.
“He has a flair for technology and is extremely efficient in getting things done each day. I am very proud that Stan received the Arnold Berliner Award, he is most deserving.”
During his tenure at UWindsor, Yavno published three papers on the behaviour and ecology of the Round Goby.
