A selection of photos from the study area, taken during the 2009 expeditions:

Volcan Barú

The team at sunrise on Panama's highest point, the summit of Volcán Barú (3475 m asl).



Searching for amphibians and reptiles in the crater of the volcano (about 3000 m asl).



Fast-flowing mountain streams, like this one in Jurutungo (2070 m asl), are mating and egg deposition sites for different frog species.
