Dissertation sampling completed!

After four grueling field seasons I have finally completed the sampling needed to finish my dissertation research. There have been numerous road blocks along the way, and it was definitely never easy, but with the help with family and friends I have finally done it. I now have excellent genetic sampling of Hadrurus, Anuroctonus, and Paruroctonus becki (the focal taxa of my dissertation), as well as numerous other scorpions throughout the American West. Now I just need to get back in the lab to finish with sequencing, analyses, and writing!

I want to give a special thanks to my wife Jessica, and my parents George and Penny. They have made huge sacrifices to support an effort that they knew was important to me… I will be forever indebted and couldn’t ask for a better family.  Oh, and thanks to Bruneau and Vegas for all of the licks along the way!!
