It's frog time again

07 August 2015

Winter is a busy time in the lab. The frogs start calling and it means that we all have to get out into the field. 

For me, nothing is nicer than spending a day than getting up into the mountain and making a recording of moss frogs. 

Here you see a microphone array, errected to conduct spatially explicit capture recapture. See Stevenson et al  for a recent publication on this method.

Welcome to the new blog and news section

We will be bringing you the latest breaking stories from the Measey Lab, and hoping to improve blogging skills.

I've added some stuff in retrospect (below), but will try to keep up to date with some of the events taking place in the lab...


Lab students win conference pub quiz

16 July 2015

Congratulations to the Lab team who won the ZSSA student pub quiz to the tune of a R500 drinking voucher at the Rat & Parrot, Grahamstown. It was a win with a narrow margin, mostly as André insisted that Rugby was a game originating in Norway! The clue's in the name, André.


Welcome Debra Stark

Debra Stark, MSc student from the University of Queensland, arrives at the lab to work on acoustic monitoring of Arthroleptella rugosa, a moss frog endemic to the Klein Swartberg.
