Oklahoma field work in progress!



The 2016 Oklahoma field season is well underway, with two sampling trips completed so far!  We are continuing the work of documenting Oklahoma biodiversity and amphibian infectious disease that we began in 2015.

Last weekend we visited the amazing Ozark Plateau National Wildlife Refuge in Eastern Oklahoma.  Eight members of the Siler Lab were able to assist in field, allowing us to catch well over 200 animals, including seven species of salamander.  We were able to stay on site at the refuge in a field house, which allowed us to focus additional time on sampling, rather than camping 🙂

Check out the snapshots of our trip and the prep sessions afterwards:
