Discovery Channel features shark research

Research on sharks and rays by graduate students working with Biological Sciences Professor Cheryl Wilga has received significant visibility in recent weeks on Daily Planet, a program of Discovery Channel/Canada. Student Anabela Maia's research on the function of shark dorsal fins was featured on Daily Planet late last month, while Jason Ramsay's study of how rays bite was featured on Daily Planet this week.
