Abstract

Brooke D'Alberto investigated the conservation biology of two families of Critically Endangered shark-like rays. The project provided life history, species distribution, and population productivity for these rays. This information will guide global conservation efforts for these threatened species. Her research has directly assisted in the species listing on multilateral trade agreements.
