Hi all! IACG has a very modest budget, our biggest expense is the liability insurance that we carry to protect ourselves and any students or visitors who participate in an IACG sponsored course or event. Usually we are able to cover these expenses with our field course income, and so we rarely come begging to you for donations. Unfortunately this year our planned field courses were cancelled and our coffers are empty. Please consider donating to help keep the lights on for another year! Our contribute page gives information on how you can support IACG, our PayPal link is below for your convenience. Thank you!

We are looking forward to the third iACG/ACG Research Open House, scheduled from July 18-19, 2019. The event will take place in Santa Rosa. Please note that we have a new format for the workshop in order to facilitate and maximize interactions and exchanges among participants. The new format includes talks by keynote speakers, lightning talks, and poster sessions, in addition to music, film, and art exhibitions. We are prioritizing time for participants to talk informally at the poster sessions. Therefore, we are soliciting submissions for posters only at this time. We are looking forward to seeing you in Santa Rosa!
The study uses 3D-printed robotic models to study mating behavior of the yellow toad Incilius luetkenii (formerly Bufo luetkenii). The sudden appearance of bright yellow males at the start of the wet season is a familiar phenomenon to those who have spent time in Santa Rosa. A 2015 paper with graduate student Nicolas Rehberg-Besler provided evidence that the color change facilitated sex recognition in this species. Video below and more at the link.

David’s first book on reptiles and amphibians of dry forest was my first field guide to tropical herps and I used it to pieces (literally). I hope that a new generation of dry forest naturalists enjoys this version as much as I did that one.
