Cafe Scientifique for October

Event Date/Time: Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013 6:00 pm
Location: Common Cup Coffeehouse


We see these ungainly creatures marching across the roads whenever it rains in the fall, but how much do we know about what they do the rest of the year? It turns out, not that much. I will cover what we do know about this handsome salamander and its role in the prairie pothole ecosystem. I'll also talk about my research on a local population of tiger salamanders, what we have discovered so far, and why we should care about their future.
