HERPETOLOGY FIELD COURSE
We still have a couple of spots open in the Field Herpetology Course: we have extended the deadline for registration to 13 June.
Dates for 2013 Summer Course - 28 July through 6 August
During this 9-night course, participants will gain knowledge on the outstanding biodiversity of amphibians and reptiles found in a wide diversity of habitats throughout southeastern Arizona and parts of southwestern New Mexico.
Participants will obtain hands-on experience in amphibian and reptile identification, collecting and marking techniques, and data documentation. The course also will cover specimen preparation of a full museum voucher specimen, including tissue vouchers.
The course is designed for students, conservation biologists, and other individuals who have a background in biology at the college level. It will emphasize taxonomy, ecology, and field identification of reptiles and amphibians of southeastern Arizona and parts of southwestern New Mexico. The course will include lectures, field trips, and labs. Collection of specimens during the course will be confined to instructors; no private collecting permitted.
