We recently acquired a portable field metabolic system, a gizmo that will allow us to measure 02, CO2 and water loss, in the field. If it works, measuring physiological variables without the need to bringing lizards to the lab. Arianne is very quickly becoming the expert, and because a photo is worth a thousand words, no need to say how excited she is about the potential questions that she will be addressing in the near future.
