My strengths are in taxonomy and evolution, the herptiles of Madagascar, and in particular, toxic amphibians (Mantella frogs and Asian salamanders).
This site is new from scratch as of 10 AM MST April 7, 1998, so please bear with me as I build and modify this site (once or twice a day right now), and please email any suggestions you might have, including possible links (there are some I just don't recall the addresses for at the moment).
Update, April 19, 1998
I've added many links and photos to these pages, renamed the page "Batrachiophile", and made one of my photos temporarily viewable as a blow-up suitable for print use. Many mantella photos are to be added, and I will start to transfer link groups to separate pages as they grow. I have a great interest in herps and wildlife in general, and am something of a surfer, finding some very good sites which might take a great deal of searching for some people to find. I hope I don't try to link them all, but will limit myself to some of the best sites and those which link to many others.
Update, April 27, 1998
I've added a number of links, done some housekeeping, and today I moved the majority of my links (mantellas and herps) out of the mantella page and into a new page, links.html. All pages now have obvious links between them, grouped near the end of each page.
December 5, 2001
After many months of being unable to edit this site, I finally have access again. Yes, it badly needs updating - between expired links, incomplete data, and much new research and photos, I have a lot to add, and a lot of restructuring to do. Please bear with me as I begin the long process.
A related problem has been an email account I was unable to access between Easter and November 2001. Please note that I have NOT seen any mail sent to firstname.lastname@example.org in that period. My new email is email@example.com.
