Congratulations to Alison Ossip-Drahos, Ph.D., visiting assistant professor of environmental science. She published the work “Sceloporus undulatus (Easter Fence Lizard) and Sceloporus megalepidurus, (Large Spiny Lizard; Espinosa Corredora). Headbob duet for mating”.

This article observes the tendencies of how these lizards mate through the display of a headbob. This work was published in the journal Herpetological Review in collaboration with multiple Marian University students, and investigators at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Universidad Autónoma de Cuidad Juárez, Indiana State University, and Arizona University. Well done, Dr. Ossip-Drahos!
