Advancing Reptile & Amphibian Conservation Biology

FWCB faculty and their students conduct research on the ecology and evolution of a wide array of animals, in order to inform the conservation of biodiversity. Amphibians and reptiles are among these groups.

Ken Kozak (Associate Professor) reconstructs the evolutionary history of populations and species using molecular techniques. Many of his recent projects have focused on salamanders.

The Bell Museum of Natural History maintains an amphibian and reptile collection, containing approximately 15,000 specimens. For more information, go to: Amphibian and Reptile Collection
