We were out surveying a terrace the other day and the staircase built in to the wall was just too good an opportunity to pass up. Here’s the team, basking on a rock wall: You’ll notice a new face in the group. Kinsey just joined the expedition and will be working with us for the … More The Team On a Wall
We were supposed to be headed to Paros today to visit some islands but look at the weather out my window: The ferry is still running but there’s no way we’re going to be island-hopping tomorrow.; it’s supposed to keep this up through the night! I guess that means it’s time to catch up on … More It’s stormy!
As I’ve mentioned here before, Podarcis erhardi have some really colorful undersides. It’s tough to get a good picture though… more often than not my fingers are covering a good bit of the lizard, obscuring its pattern. I’m working on solutions, but I haven’t found one yet. My most recent attempt is using … More Picturing lizards
Here’s some teaser footage from a recent kayaking trip. The kayaks are working great, thanks Oru! I’m heading out kayaking to a small island again in an hour, I should have some more footage soon!

I do miss catching the little guys, but I make sure my measuring station at least has a … More Pictures from the field
We do lots of driving on Naxos. This is our trusty field car. It’s a Fiat Panda. We call it the Panda Express. It’s sometimes a little tight, but we make everything fit. Okay, it’s really tight, but we love it nonetheless. (The kayaks worked beautifully by the way but I don’t have any pictures … More The Panda Express
Things are a bit too busy here right now to do much posting, but I know everyone likes pictures, so I’ll have to let them speak for us. We’re getting lots of work done, data is starting to pile up, and we’re seeing lots of cool stuff. Kat’s been best about taking people pictures so let … More Pictures of People Doing Things (Part 1)
Hi Everyone, As promised, here’s a quick tour of our living quarters courtesy of Kat, Angus, and Zach. They took some artistic license with my request for a quick video tour through the house… hope you enjoy! All credit goes to the three of them, and before you give me a hard time about giving … More Introducing the Castle!
This year I’ve been lucky enough to bring three Yale undergraduates along with me to Greece. They’ve been here for almost a week and are settling in admirably! They’re going to be a huge part of this summer, and a major ingredient for its success, so I want to give them a full introduction. You’ll … More Introducing the team!
