I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Ecology & Evolution and a STRIDE Fellow at Stony Brook University in New York. My work focuses on Puerto Rican anole lizard conservation using species distribution models, population models, and competition experiments in the field. I consider myself a herpetologist, a population ecologist, and a conservation biologist.
Tropical ectotherms are generally believed to be more vulnerable to global heating than temperate species. Currently, however, we have insufficient knowledge of the thermoregulatory physiology of equatorial tropical mammals, particularly of small diurnal mammals, to enable similar predictions. In this study, we measured the resting metabolic rates...
