Rep: Lauren has started on the right path
Default greetings, caudata.org!

I'm Lauren (as you may have guessed) I'm currently in the last painful days of my junior year of high school in Massachusetts, USA. This past semester I have been in an advanced biology class, which is my school's version of AP bio, except that we don't have to teach to a specific curriculum. One of the requirements of the class is that we write two 30-page research papers on a topic relevant to what we are learning in class, and one of my friends wrote his about regeneration. Naturally, axolotls and newts were central in his paper. All of my classmates, after reading his paper, have become absolutely enthralled with these amazing creatures, which has spurred me to join this forum. Just to give you an idea of the intensity of adv bio, we are doing an ongoing experiment that will likely run through next school year studying the effects of triclosan on the development of frogs, integrating levels of triclosan currently present in area lakes and streams, and ultimately we want to predict when triclosan levels in these bodies of water will become highly problematic.
I guess you could say I'm the representative for my class on this website, and our "animal of choice" is the axolotl.

Welcome, Lauren. The topic of regeneration is also what got me hooked on newts - a mere 25 years ago!

I haven't seen any specific discussions of triclosan on this forum, but I'm sure we'd be interested in hearing the results of your project. And if you have any general questions about axolotls or newts, you've come to the right place

Welcome to the forum. Triclosan is one of my pet peeves. It's in everything in the US now-a-days, even toothpaste and hand soap. Thankfully I don't remember seeing it around much in Europe.
