Project TOPS

Rory spent much of May and June as a visiting scientist in southern France. There he worked with longtime collaborators (and fellow ISU alums) Eric Gangloff and Antonio Cordero, and new collaborators Fabien Aubret and Essie Rodgers. For project TOPS, they quantified temperature-oxygen performance surfaces in common wall lizards (Podarcis muralis). It was an amazing time and seems to have resulted in some very cool data (more soon). Check out the video above and Eric’s most recent post on his site, French Mountain Lizards, for more!
