Hi Jim! Thanks for your comment. I will be giving this presentation during the poster session of the JASM event in Grand Rapids. If you were keen on seeing more of the posters and chatting with other scientists, you could register for the meeting virtually (https://jasm2022.aquaticsocieties.org/registration/), though it is very expensive to do so and I don't think there would be a livestream session for my presentation. However, I just uploaded a copy of my poster to the main page of my project on the experiment platform, under the "Results" section if folks want to check it out there for free. Please feel free to reach out with questions or comments on the poster, or the progress of the project.
