FelipeFelipe Rodríguez

Felipe is Professor of Biology at the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico in Toluca, Mexico and studies all sorts of aspects of the evolutionary ecology of reptiles.




Troy2Troy Baird

Troy is a Profesor Emeritus of Biology at the University of Central Oklahoma.  He works with the behavioral ecology of collared lizards.





JerryJerry Husak

Jerry is an Associate Professor at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnsota.  He is interested in how natural and sexual selection shape physiological and morphological traits, especially performance traits.  Jerry was my former PhD student.



 DanielDaniel Pincheira-Donoso

Daniel is Lecturer in the School of Life Sciences at Queen's University in Belfast. Daniel is an evolutionary biologist interested in selection theory, ecology and genetics of adaptations, macroecology, life history evolution, and climate change biology, related especially to lizards.



DayDay Ligon

Day is Associate Professor of Biology at Missouri State University.  He is interested in physiological ecology and conservation of reptiles, with an emphasis on turtles.




RonRonald Van Den Bussche

Ron is a Regents Professor of Integrative Biology at Oklaoma State University.  He is a molecular geneticist who addresses phylogenetic, phylogeographic, or population genetic questions in mammals, especially bats.



Matt LovernMatthew Lovern

Matt is Associate Professor of Integrative Biology at Oklahoma State University.  He is a behavioral endocrinologist who studies maternal effects, focusing on maternal steroid deposition into yolk as a potential means of influencing offspring phenotype, especially in lizards.



JenJennifer Grindstaff

Jen is Associate Professor of Integrative Biology at Oklahoma State University. She is a behavioral ecologist who works in ecological immunology, integrating field and laboratory work to explore how ecological and physiological parameters act and interact to influence parent and offspring phenotypes.



ChipDavid Leslie, Jr.

Chip is the Fish and Wildlife Co-op Unit Leader in Natural Resource Ecology and Management at Oklahoma State University. He is involved in a multitude of wildlife research projects, including freshwater turtle conservation and ecology.




Dan MoenDan Moen

Dan is a new Assistant Professor in the Department of Integrative Biology at Oklahoma State University, arriving in the fall of 2015.  In his research, he address questions of diversification, phenotypic evolution, and community ecology, using amphibians and reptiles as study organisms.  Particularly, he studies whole-animal locomotory performance of world anurans in the context of phylogenetic comparative analyses. OSU is lucky to have him. Dan is fluent in Spanish.



ElisaElisa Cabrera-Guzmán

Elisa is a new Teaching Assistant Professor in the Department of Integrative Biology at Oklahoma State University, arriving in the fall of 2015.  She studies invasive species, biological interactions, ecology of freshwater environments, community ecology, habitat fragmentation, and conservation biology, mostly in herps.  She is Mexican and bilingual in Spanish and English.
