The discovery of Telmatobius ventriflavum is being featured this week by ARKive as part of their Conservation Heroes series (http://blog.arkive.org/2015/03/arkives-conservation-heroes-dr-alessandro-catenazzi-discoverer-of-a-new-peruvian-frog-species/) and by AmphibiaWeb as the newsbox on the portal's webpage (http://www.amphibiaweb.org/). Check out my wish list for ways to support amphibian conservation.
Brandon has accepted a PhD position to work with Dr. Douglas Woodhams at UMASS Boston starting this Fall!
David is finally having success with bacterial DNA extractions and will soon be shipping them off to be sequenced!
Alex will be traveling to Costa Rica (tomorrow) and later to Panama to do some doctoral research with rebounding frog populations! I'm sure he will be blogging from the field to keep everyone updated and interested in awesome amphibian field science!
