Research interests

  • Sexual selection in frogs and toads: males' reproductive investment, male-male competition, cryptic female choice, reproductive interference between species.
  • Herptile conservation: chytridiomycosis, habitat preference, mitigation measures for amphibians and reptiles (tunnels, fences).
  • Reptilian termoregulation: costs and benefits, termoregulatory strategies in different environments.
