Do you like caving ? In early September, Anthony Herrel and I went to Moulis (Ariège, France) to visit the CNRS laboratory cave part of the SETE, hosted by our collaborator Olivier Guillaume, without whom this would not have been…
We traveled to the Amphibian Foundation in Atlanta, Georgia in the United States to catch and film salamanders! In this gallery we share photos of our fieldwork and how we set up the camera and lights to film feeding behaviours.
We presented our research at the Biology 23 meeting in Geneva, Switzerland - the largest conference of organismic biology in Switzerland!
To document the diversity of feeding strategies among salamanders we're using high-speed video to capture feeding behaviors from live salamanders. In this photo gallery we share photos of how we care for our live salamanders and prepare them to take center stage for filming.
To collect data on the diversity of shapes and sizes in salamanders, we use micro CT scanning. In this photo gallery we share photos of a recent visit to the CT scanning facility and explain how we create high-resolution meshes from natural history specimens.
Natural history collections are vast repositories of biodiversity data. We share photos of a recent visit we made to a natural history museum to collect linear caliper measurements and other data from the specimens.
