Field work in northern Vietnam

I have recently concluded some field work in Vietnam with colleagues Dr. R. Graham Reynolds, Dr. Truong Quang Nguyen, Dr. Cuong The Pham, and Hayden R. Davis. One of the most notable finds was this remarkable endemic tiger gecko (Goniurosaurus catbaensis). The specimens collected during our surveys will join a growing repository of life on Earth at the Smithsonian Institution, as well as aid further study of reptile and amphibian systematics in Southeast Asia. This research is supported by the Global Genome Initiative (https://ggi.si.edu/), and is a collaboration between the National Museum of Natural History, the Institute for Ecology and Biological Resources (Hanoi, Vietnam), and the University of North Carolina Asheville.
