Arthropod acoustic communication is a primary focus at the Patek Lab. Here you can find our acoustically oriented research projects along with sounds and video of spiny lobsters (Palinuridae) and mantis shrimp (Stomatopoda).
Congratulations to former lab manager Elizabeth Murphy and postdoc Thomas Claverie!
Elizabeth Murphy will be heading to the University of Virginia for a Ph.D. with Prof. Matt Reidenbach.
