Kyle Lloyd (MIMMP PhD student) has started his 3 month visit to Montana State University (MSU) in Bozeman, USA. Kyle will be collaborating with Prof. Jay Rotella and colleagues of the Ecology Department to further his research on the population ecology of male southern elephant seals. The topics of his research will focus on environmental drives of pre-breeder vital rates and factors influencing senescence patterns in breeders. Kyle hopes to develop his skills in population modelling and to strengthen the MIMMP's budding relationship with MSU. Despite being cold and snowy at the moment, Bozeman offers a breathtaking environment to stimulate the Sealer's mind.
