Dr. Heather Masonjones and Dr. Emily Rose launched the Spring 2017 Honors Program Symposium series with a fascinating presentation on their work on seahorses in the Bahamas.  Their work has been focused on a pond called Sweetings on the Bahamian island of Eleuthera, where the density of seahorses is far above that found in the ocean more generally.  The presentation noted that the seahorses in Sweetings Pond, based on DNA evidence, have not become a unique species yet, but may be headed down that path due to their isolation from the ocean.
