Invasive Burmese Python Research

  • Evaluating the direct and indirect effects of pythons on the Everglades Ecosystem

  • Development of novel methods for abundance and density estimation

  • Population modeling to assess population growth and evaluate control measures

  • Evaluating how ecological and life-history traits differentiate snakes from other invasive species

  • Laboratory and field experiments to investigate python thermal biology, physiological cold-tolerance, and behavioral plasticity
