Field Work

Field work is central to our studies. Recent and ongoing field projects include work in the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Florida, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, and Australia. Most of our recent work has been focused on the Dominican Republic, where Julienne and Anthony have been studying speciation in anoles and Dan has been investigating adaptive radiation in dwarf geckos (Sphaerodactylus). More photos and videos of our field work can be found at flickr and on YouTube.
