Herpetologist needed for 2012 symposium

Posted on Feb 15, 2011

I would like to submit a proposal for an ASIH symposium in 2012 on ectotherm ecology with stable isotope analysis. Recently, studies using stable isotope techniques have been focusing on ectotherm ecology.My own research interests are with applications to modern and paleo-elasmobranch ecology. However, I have noted the limited number of papers on ectotherm taxa and think this symposium would greatly benefit from representation across all ectothermic animals, especially turtles, crocodiles, amphibians, and reptiles. Unfortunately, these taxa are not my area of expertise and I do not know many researchers who focus on these taxa. Thus, I am asking researchers and/or potential symposium participants with a specialty in herpetofauna to contact me so that I might gauge interest in this topic. I can be contacted at skim11 [at] Sora Kim Post-doctoral Researcher Department of Geology & Geophysics University of Wyoming #3006 Laramie Wyoming 82071
