A field expedition to the Caribbean tropics of Hispaniola to study *Anolis*
lizard thermal physiology will be led by Brooke Bodensteiner (Virginia Tech
PhD student, Muñoz lab) in June and July 2018. We are currently seeking
motivated field assistants to join on the trip and participate in the field
and experimental aspects of the study. For example, students will help
Bodensteiner collect lizards, measure physiological traits, and record
ecological data. The sites to be visited span both the west and east sides
of the Dominican Republic, including tropical rain forest sites along the
coast, xeric scrubland sites in the coastal inlands, and montane cloud
forests. For students interested in learning more about the tropics,
herpetology, and behavioral ecology, this will be a fun and exciting
opportunity. Applicants should enthusiastic about tropical field biology
and work well with others. We are looking for assistant available up to 8
weeks of field work, but commitment to the entire time is not necessary.
Spanish language abilities and/or field experience are preferred, but not
required. We will cover all travel and living expenses while in the
Dominican Republic.

Please Contact:  Brooke Bodensteiner at bodenbro@vt.edu with CV,
availability, and Spanish proficiency.
