salamander foraging experiments underway

Postdoc Dave Daversa and summer intern Elizabeth Green have been hard at work getting their salamander foraging experiments underway. Using our unique 12-camera tracking system, the plan is to explore how spatial and temporal variation in the foraging and escape behavior scale up to affect the outcome of species interactions. We are using spotted salamander (Ambystoma maculatum) larvae feeding on gray tree frog (Hyla versicolor) tadpole prey.

And some photos of the experiment...
