Introducing Allison Fuiten

Hello! I am a new graduate student in Herpetology at the KU Biodiversity Institute. I am interested in studying the evolutionary history, biogeography and morphology of frogs from Southeast Asia.

This week I’ll set out on my first field expedition and I’m very excited. I will be on this trip from December 30th to January 21st with several other ecology and evolutionary biology students and faculty. We will be going to Mt. Palali, in the Caraballo Mountains of Nueva Viscaya Province, in the Philippines. The purpose of this trip is collect specimens that will be used in current and future research involving the biodiversity of the Philippines. -Allie
