Clarissa Publishes Manuscript in Journal of Experimental Biology

Clarissa’s manuscript on the effects of photoperiod on the gut microbiome and aggression was recently published in the Journal of Experimental Biology! In this study, Clarissa found that SD males and females exhibited distinct changes in the relative abundance of gut bacterial phyla and families, and that these changes were associated with aggressive behavior. Collectively, her findings suggest a role for the gut microbiome in modulating social behavior in seasonally breeding animals.

A link for the manuscript can be found under the “Publications” page and can also be accessed here.
