A recipient of a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) appointment from the Fralin Life Science Institute at Virginia Tech, Tyler Williams is evaluating a fluorescent powder tracking method used on reticulated flatwood salamanders, which are endangered in Florida due to a decline in the habitat where they lay their eggs. If scientists can determine the everyday behaviors of the salamanders, they might be able to implement conservation practices to help them. Specifically, Williams is testing the addition of mineral oil to the fluorescent powder.
