Herper of the week

Herper of the Week: David C. Blackburn


The goal of Herper of the Week is to highlight people from all walks of life who work with reptiles and amphibians and show their work to others. This week’s Herper of the Week is Dr. David C. Blackburn, curator of amphibians and reptiles at the Florida Museum of Natural History and the head of the Blackburn Lab.

The Blackburn Lab focuses on the diversity, evolution, and natural history of reptiles and amphibians (herps). Most of the work focuses on African species of herps. Former Herper of the Week – Marcel Talla Kouete is a member of the lab. Another project that the lab leads is oVert or openVertebrate, a program that provides free, 3D digital anatomy models to anyone. It is a very cool project.
