KAKENHI success: Early-Career Scientist grant to Dr Wyatt

Dr Wyatt has been awarded an Early-Career Scientist (KAKENHI) grant by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) to clarify several mysteries surrounding the critically threatened whale shark. The research aims to quantify the global prevalence of foraging specialisation, fasting and herbivory, and | Click for More →
