Siler Lab Participates in Science in Action



Last Sunday, Sept. 28, the Siler lab participated in the Sam Noble Museum’s annual Science in Action and Object ID Day event.  Over 700 members of the public came by to learn about the museum’s galleries, collections, and additional University of Oklahoma participants, such as the Sooner Lunar and OU Botany Club.

The Siler lab shared 9 historical and recent specimens collected in the Philippines by Sam Noble Museum and University of Kansas Biodiversity Institute staff members and students.  Each specimen was matched to photos of the animal in life, all taken by Dr. Siler.  We also shared a short video the Summer 2014 trip to Samar Island in the Philippines by Dr. Siler, Nick Huron, and 20+ collaborators from all over the US and the Philippines.
