7th World Congress of Herpetology

Hi from Vancouver, Canada. The 7th World Congress of Herpetology began today, and the Chipojo Lab is nicely represented by two of its best (looking) members, Dave Steinberg and Brian Powell. This meeting brings together herpetologists from around world (more than 1600 registrations), and it is characterized by a humongous number of talks and posters covering a diversity of research topics. Tomorrow, our own Dave will take the podium to rock the evening session by presenting his work on the modulation of signal properties as a behavioral mechanism to optimize signal detection.  All I have to say, if you are in Vancouver, you should not miss his talk. Please stay tuned for updates from British Columbia.
