The Powers Lab once again ventured to the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology (SICB) meeting held this year in New Orleans January 4-8.  We had a good crew at the meeting consisting of Dr. Powers, current research students Elizah Stephens and Nathan Weston, former research students Sean Powers and Rosey Elting, and Anusha Shankar our collaborating Ph.D. student from Stony Brook University.  Dr. Powers gave an updated talk on hummingbird heat dissipation during hovering, Anusha gave a talk on modeling energy budgets in hummingbirds, and Sean gave a talk on lizards existing at the extreme limits of their range.  Elizah presented a poster on microbial contamination in hummingbird feeders, Nathan gave a poster on the contribution of feeders to the daily energy budget in hummingbirds, and Sean presented a poster on physiological regulation of head dissipation in hummingbirds.  Dr. Powers also co-authored a presentation given by Derrick Groom, a graduate student in Dr. Ken Welch’s lab, on hummingbird wing allometry.  Powers Lab research was well represented at SICB!
