Amphibian and reptile surveys

Since 1995, my students and I have conducted herpetological surveys of the plains regions of Colorado . This work has involved many graduate and undergraduate students, as well as non-students, and was funded by the Colorado Division of Wildlife, the Great Outdoors Colorado program and the USDA Forest Service. Several papers on various aspects of the natural history and ecology of the Texas horned lizard have come out of this project. A general survey report of a small portion of this work, focusing on the Comanche, National Grasslands, can be found on the Net at:

In addition, several students in my lab have pursued questions involving the ecotoxicology of pesticides toward larval anurans. Our work with amphibians and reptiles of the plains of eastern Colorado has resulted in 47 county distributional records (published in Herpetological Review).
