Fieldwork in Argentina

I have just come back from two weeks of field work in Chubut province, Argentina. My collaborator (Luciano Avila) and I were based out of Puerto Madryn, but we made daily excursions eastward to sample a putative hybrid zone involving Liolaemus melanops and Liolaemus chehuachekenk. These samples will be used to examine comparative genomic divergences between 5 species of Liolaemus. Besides catching lizards, I saw many other cool animals including flamingos, penguins, vipers, southern sea lions, and elephant seals! You can read my post about this trip at the Burke Museum blog, and see more photos and videos on facebook!
