Xylo Lazrinth, Wilson Lab

My name is Xylo (they/them) and I’m a rising junior at Brooklyn College, double majoring in Biology and Philosophy with a concentration in medical ethics. I currently work as an undergraduate researcher in the Forlano Lab investigating the impact of anthropogenic noise on the calling behavior of oyster toadfish and am particularly interested in studying how the behavior of marine organisms is impacted by human-led activities. In my free time, I enjoy making PowerPoint presentations of my niche interests, journaling, and engaging in mild tomfoolery. I’m excited to be part of the BUEE program this summer and study reproductive behavior in northern pipefish with Dr. Wilson.

Private: Urban Beekeeping Personal Reflection

Given current data assessing the social and ecological outcomes resulting from urban beekeeping, I’d argue that, although there is uncertainty in certain areas, this is a hobby that primarily offers a variety of positive benefits. Several outcomes, including improved mental and physical health, increased understanding of local environment, and local economic growth, speak to urban beekeeping’s ability to facilitate healthy community dynamics. In turn, because of the emphasis on environment that accompanies successful beekeeping, an increase in support for policies and practices relevant to conservation efforts is expected. To maximize positive effect, however, this requires trained hobbyists who are conscious of the role of native pollinators and are mindful of how introducing honeybees may displace those populations.
