ASU Research Review: Tracking the Gila Monsters
Nov. 16, 2005
Assistant Professor Dale Denardo and graduate student John Davis, researchers in the School of Life Sciences, are tracking the activities of Gila Monsters in the Sonoran Desert. The animals are implanted with radio transmitters and temperature gauges in an effort to learn more about how they are able to cope with the desert’s extreme temperatures. The program will follow the researchers in the field as they collect Gilas at their study site north of Tucson.
