Although my research has involved systematic biology, evolution, ecology, reproduction, and conservation biology, I now have numerous other projects taking place throughout the world. Please visit this site in the near future to see updated information.

Madagascar Leaf-nose Snakes

I have completed two studies on the reproduction and feeding behavior of Langaha madagascariensis, which were published in the African Journal of Herpetology (2003, 2005) below. It would be nice to study this species again one day!

Indigo Snake Genetics

I received two grants (FWC and The Orianne Society) to conduct phylogenetic analyses on the Eastern Indigo Snake (Drymarchon couperi). Using five entire or partial mitochondrial DNA genes and three nuclear genes, we discovered two historical genetic lineages of indigos, which diverged from each other more than 1 million years ago. These lineages correspond to historical biogeography (i.e., sea level changes) during the Pleistocene.

Kingsnake Genetics

I received one grant (FWC) to conduct phylogenetic analyses on Kingsnakes, Lampropeltis getula complex, in the eastern United States. Using five entire or partial mitochondrial DNA genes, we discovered three genetic lineages of Kingsnakes east of the Appalachian Mountains. These lineages correspond to historical biogeography (i.e., sea level changes) during the Pleistocene, as well as currently recognized subspecific taxa.

Florida Exotics

Since I was a graduate student in Miami in 1992, one of my main studies concerns introduced herpetofaunal species in Florida. This is a large project in conjunction with Kevin M. Enge and Paul E. Moler (FWC), Ellen Donlan (South Florida Water Management District), Skip Snow (Everglades National Park), Robert Reed (U.S. Geological Survey), and so many other colleagues. Most of our research is conducted throughout southern peninsular Florida and the Florida Keys. Our once pristine state has become home to at least 60 established non-native herpetofaunal species (documented with vouchers) as people continue to illegally release their former pets into the wild and they establish reproducing populations where they obviously do not belong.

Atlas of Amphibians and Reptiles in Florida

We received two grants (NSF [HerpNet] and FWC) to georeference specimen localities to create the first "Atlas of Amphibians and Reptiles in Florida."

We completed this project on 15 December 2011, georeferencing 134,404 Florida specimens from 58 institutions.

For georeferencing purposes, I sometimes think it would be much easier to go back to when there were only two counties!

Amphibians and Reptiles of Florida book

We are now updating and modifying our original Atlas into a full blown book with more than 5,000 new records, full species accounts, maps, and great color photos.

It is really awesome, so stay tuned!

Pakistan Geckos

Kurt Auffenberg and I are working on a book of the Geckos of Pakistan. Below is the holotype of our Short-limbed Bent-toed Gecko (Cyrtopodion brachykolon). More to come later!
