Dr. Kathleen Hunt of Northern Arizona University (USA) is a vertebrate endocrinologist with particular expertise in the evaluation of stress in captive vertebrates, with particular focus on assessment of stress and reproduction of mammals, birds and reptiles in the wild and in the captive environment. Her work has been centered in developing and applying innovative techniques for ecophy...
This project will determine how secondary key innovations within the venom system contribute to diversification patterns in the advanced snakes and test for biases in the genetic pathways underlying rapid phenotypie evolution in venoms as a means for understanding the mechanism underlying the process of diversification in this diverse group. In the first part, we will test for relations...
We aim to describe phylogenetic, biogeographic and ecological patterns of snakes while focusing mainly on the Neotropical fauna. Further, we will explore the evolutionary processes involved in the origin of these patterns. We will use a multidisciplinary approach to investigate the evolution of the species throughout a time interval that extends from the Cretaceous to the Recent. The pr...
