Research and Expertise

  • Herpetology, biogeography, systematics and evolution, biodiversity, conservation

    The primary focus of my research involves the biodiversity and systematics of Neotropical amphibians and reptiles.  My studies have taken me to the most remote regions of Latin America and led to the discovery of over 150 species new to science.  This type of research is essential in understanding the distributions and origins of faunas and also plays an important role in decisions about what areas are especially worthy of protection

Projects

  • 1990
    • July 1990 to Present Herpetofauna of Mexico and Guatemala

      I have discovered a number of systematic problems concerning the herpetofauna of northern LLatin America during my 40+ years of exploration of the region.  I am working on projects to elucidate relationships and describe species currenty unknown to science.
