Briefly, I am interested in the physiological ecology of amphibians and reptiles, including integrative studies that incorporate morphology and behavior. I am interested in almost all aspects of the biology of snakes and tree frogs. I also have long-standing interests in conservation biology, fire ecology, and animal coloration.
