By 2050, 60% of the world’s population will live in tropical areas, increasing pressure to biodiversity. In particular, reptiles and amphibians will begin feeling the consequences of this migration, as well as the impacts of our changing landscapes and climate. Herpetology refers to the study of reptiles and amphibians. Our teams are committed to furthering collaborative missions to provide a comprehensive assessment of herpetological biodiversity across tropical and sub-tropical regions, and contribute to data-driven management solutions.
Several of our researchers work on different projects that contribute to the understanding of tropical herpetological biodiversity. Many of these projects also have direct or indirect implications for the survival and conservation of the species being studied.
