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.
This week’s herper is Dr. Heather L. Bateman, associate professor at Arizona State University, Polytechnic since 2008. She earned her doctorate from the University of New Mexico. Her current research focus on management of riparian or floodplain habitats with focus on reptiles, amphibians, and birds.
