Cameron is currently teaching a two-week Field Herpetology course at the OU Biological Station on Lake Texoma.  He is joined by graduate TA Nick Huron and undergrad TAs Claire Winfrey and Elyse Ellsworth (all members of the Siler Lab).  The course covers herpetological taxonomy and biology, amphibian infectious diseases, and new research techniques like epithelial microbiome sampling and eDNA water sampling.  Students are having a great time in the Oklahoma July heat and mud, although the herps have not been easy to find!
