Field sites

Our study of wall lizards takes us to beautiful locations in southern Europe, such as Tuscany, Liguria, the foothills of the Pyrenees and Spain. We also regularly conduct field work in many non-native populations in England. Field work on the Egernia lizards of Australia provide a welcome respite from the European winter. Daphnia field sites are found in southern Sweden.
