Isabel and Alessandro gave talks at the Segundo Simposio Peruano de Herpetologia at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia. Isabel's talk entitled "Factores ambientales que determinan la abundancia relativa y riqueza de anfibios terrestres en el Parque Nacional del Manu, Cusco-Perú" explored the effects of abiotic and biotic variables associated with variation in frog species richness, abundance and biomass in the montane forests of the Amazonian slopes of the Andes.
Alessandro gave a plenary talk on the first day of the symposium, "Dos décadas de investigaciones herpetológicas en los Andes Amazónicos", summarizing some of the taxonomic, ecological and conservation work that the lab has conducted over the years, with special emphasis on the current project monitoring disease transmission in terrestrial-breeding frogs in the cloud forests of Manu National Park. Both talks were given remotely.
