In particular, common rattlesnake (Crotalus and Sistrurus
genera) venom components include metalloproteinases, serine proteases, phospholipases [A.
Both radiotelemetry and fiber-optic scopes have been used to locate hibernacula and observe Sistrurus
catenatus rattlesnakes (smith, 2009); however, their combined use has not been reported for study of lizards.

Among their topics are reconstructing concordance trees and testing the coalescent model from genome-wide data sets, inference of a parsimonious species tree from multilocus data by minimizing deep coalescences, summarizing gene tree incongruence at multiple phylogenetic depths, and estimating species relationships and taxon distinctiveness in Sistrurus
rattlesnakes using multilocus data.
