In mid-August, Lily presented a poster on her thesis work at the 2022 Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America. She entitled it “How does translocation affect the movement and survival of a population of gophersnakes at their northern range limit?”.
In July, members of our lab attended the 4th international Biology of the Pitvipers meeting in Rodeo, New Mexico. Presenting on their work were Chloe, Jade, Veronica, and Matt (Matt has since departed the lab for a position with the Penticton Indian Band). Karl also gave a presentation summarizing the past two-decades of work by the lab on rattlesnakes. Afterwards the group was superbly hosted by Mike and Denise Cardwell at their home in the Sonoran Desert on the outskirts of Tuscon, Arizona.
