    About This Project

    Northern populations of the Texas Horned Lizard have experienced significant decline over recent decades. Disease has played a significant role in the decline of other reptiles and amphibians and little is known right now about the common pathogens affecting the Texas Horned Lizard. The aim of my project is to identify the common pathogens affecting this species and to determine whether there may be a risk of introducing foreign pathogens during translocation efforts for conservation purposes.
