National attention for Red-Eyed Treefrog Research
Dr. Karen Warkentin and recent graduate, Dr. Michael Caldwell, have received national attention for their research on the vibration behavior of the red-eyed treefrog. Dr. Caldwell conducted his dissertation work on the red-eyed treefrog (Agalychnis callidryas) in Dr. Warkentin's lab and studied how frogs use vibrational information for predator avoidance and communication. Their research was recently highlighted in National Geographic, Science Now, Discover Magazine, Live Science, The New York Times, and NPR's Science Fridays. Additionally, their research was featured on the cover of the June 2010 edition of Current Biology.
