Lab Update

Research is on-schedule! I have completed almost all laboratory work for this project. Once I have all the data back I can start analyzing and writing. Of course, I have been analyzing some of the data over the past few months already, and there have been several writing projects on my plate as well. I currently have two manuscripts and one book chapter in review.

With regard to the lab work, it's amazing how many samples we collected while in Palenque. This dataset is truly enormous. I've included a picture from one step of one analysis to provide an idea of how much processing all of these samples required. It would be interesting to know if I've clocked as many hours in the laboratory as I did in the field in Palenque. Probably not, but I have spent enough hours bent over a lab bench that it's nice to be approaching a temporary stopping point (as I finish my dissertation and move on to the next project). Needless to say, there should be some interesting papers as a result of all of this work.
