Each week a “Herper” of the Week is chosen. These individuals come from all sorts of backgrounds but they all have one common interest – “herps” (reptiles and amphibians). Hopefully, you will learn about them and their important work.
The Herper of the Week is Mary Kate O’Donnell, Ph.D candidate at Deban Lab at the University of South Florida. Her Ph.D is focusing on variations in climbing in salamanders in the family Plethodontidae – the Lungless Salamanders.
