Geographic overlap promotes different feather colours, but similar songs, in birds

Birds of a feather don’t flock together: a study finds avian species sharing space exhibit greater difference in colouration, but more similar songs.

UWindsor vaping research grabs international attention

Research by UWindsor’s Drew Marquardt into how vaping injures the lungs has captured the attention of the chemistry world. 

A recent paper by Dr. Marquardt and his team, published recently in the journal Chemical Research in Toxicology, is featured in the American Chemical Society’s latest news release.
