Through close observation of museum specimens, learn how the university’s herpetological collections are used for forensic investigations, embryological and natural history research, and the discovery of new species. Then try your hand at data collection and analysis in a hands-on investigation of the evolution of anolis lizards, based on current research by evolutionary biologist Sofia Prado-Irwin, who will lead this activity.
