Dr. Booth on Reptile Parthenogenesis

One day while reading various science articles I happened to stumble upon an article that got my attention regarding reptile parthenogenesis. Owning parthenogenetic reptiles myself I was intrigued and read the article. I was floored to learn not only are there more parthenogenetic reptiles than I had thought but they were in captive environments and the implications of this are simply amazing. So I immediately spoke with Jo our Content Director and she set-up the interview with Dr. Warren Booth of University of Tulsa. Now you have the opportunity to not only learn about his incredible paper but you as a herpetoculturist can participate in his research! That’s right folks, he is calling on herpetoculturists to help in his research so what are you waiting for? Listen to the interview and get involved.
