This summer (2016), our lab travelled to the shores of the mighty Mississippi: Shorf presented a poster on his elephant conservation work at the 96th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Mammalogists, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. About a week later, Stephanie and Jared both gave oral papers on their work at the Joint Meeting of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists in New Orleans, Louisiana. I also chipped in presentations at both conferences, including a co-authored paper with Jessica.
The 3M competition at our university was won this year by Jared. Everyone loves snakes.

On November 17th Jessica successfully defended her thesis on ‘thermal landscapes’ and rattlesnake migration”. Congratulations, Jess.
Jared’s & Stephanie’s work on rattlesnakes was featured on Global TV. Click here.

For the fourth year in a row, we conducted a mid-summer live-trapping survey for small mammals across the Osoyoos snake study site. This year Jared Maida (sitting in the middle on the truck bumper) did a great job of organizing the gala event. As always, captures were not high in the dry desert, although one site on the side of a hill produced a fair number of pocket mice. With the trapping coinciding with the shortest nights of the year, everyone averaged about 4.5 hrs of sleep/night for three days, so a HUGE thanks to our super volunteers…
