The Muñoz lab went to the Southeast regional SICB meeting on November 10 hosted at Clemson University. Dr. Muñoz and Henry both gave talks titled “A physiological test of the island effect in the adaptive radiation of anole” and “Functional consequences of morphological variation between locally adapted populations” respectively.
PhD student Brooke Bodensteiner will be giving a talk at the Division of Phylogenetics and Comparative Biology (DPCB) Best Student Paper: Wake Award at the Society of Comparative and Integrative Biology (SICB) conference in January in Tampa, FL. She will be discussing recent research exploring multidimensional phenotypes involved in the adaptive radiation of anoles in the Dominican Republic.
Dr. Martha Muñoz started started as an assistant professor in the department of biological science at Virginia Tech in August 2017. Dr. Muñoz has brought on a postdoctoral researcher, Dr. Vincent Farallo, and Ph.D. Student, Brooke Bodensteiner to help get her lab up and running. Check out the article from VT News welcoming Dr. Muñoz to the university. Research in the lab is already off to a great start, look out for updates in the near future!
