Curator Greg Pauly

Colloquium: Pauly will discuss citizen science

This week’s Biology Colloquium series seminar will be given by Greg Pauly, Curator of Herpetology at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles. Pauly will discuss his projects applying citizen science — contributions to data collection and analysis by lay volunteers — in ecology and animal behavior research. From his profile on the Museum Website:

Pauly’s research focuses on the natural history, evolution, and conservation of reptiles and amphibians.  His research interests include phylogenetics, systematics, conservation genetics, the evolution of mating signals in frogs, and the impacts of urbanization on reptiles and amphibians.

The Biology Colloquium series is held every Friday during the semester, at 2:00pm in Chaparral Hall room 5125.
