News from the Barrett Lab:

The second chapter of Marion Clements' thesis was just published online at Urban Ecosystems: An unexpected backyard hunter: Breeding barred owls exhibit plasticity in habitat selection along a development gradient. Congrats, Marion!

We'd like to welcome our new Creative Inquiry and UPIC interns, who have joined the lab for summer field work! We're excited to have Theresa McManus, Marti Leake, Emma Rogers, and Jonathan Witt working with us!

Congrats to Nikki Roach, Barrett Lab alum, who recently defended her PhD at Texas A&M University from the Wildlife and Fisheries Science Department!

The Barrett Lab had a great time seeing old friends and meeting new ones at the 2020 meeting of Southeastern Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (SEPARC) at Camp McDowell in Alabama. Current lab members Megan Novak and Bryan Hudson presented on their research in progress, and Jill Newman gave a talk on her green salamander work that took place in the lab.

Congratulations to Marion Clement, who successfully defended her thesis!

Blue Ridge Outdoors recently published an article and video by Kyle Ritland which highlights the plights of salamanders in the Southeast. Kyle Barrett was interviewed for the article and several Barrett Lab collaborators are also featured.
