Robert C. Jadin



    My name is Robert C. Jadin and I am a herpetologist and systematist studying morphological and molecular phylogenetics of reptiles. I am a Ph.D. student in the department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Colorado at Boulder in the lab of Dr. Robert P. Guralnick. Additionally, I am an adjunct researcher in the Dr. Eric N. Smith's Research Group and at the Amphibian and Reptile Diversity Research Center at the University of Texas at Arlington.

    I have a keen interest in conservation biology and hope that while contributing scientific knowledge about diversity and complexities of organisms and ecosystems, my writings will eventually be influential in assisting with reducing the planet's current biodiversity crisis. I have a love for tropical fieldwork and am hoping to concentrate a lot of my research in Central and South America, as well as expand into Southeast Asia.

    My website is a personal website for friends and family to check in on me and find out what I have been up to, however, I do often receive and enjoy random e-mails from other people that have questions or comments about reptiles and amphibians. I do stay pretty busy so please be patient with me on the occasion that I can't immediately get back with you by e-mail.

    This website is dedicated to the conservation of reptiles and amphibians, their habitat, and other animals that they live with. One goal that I have for my life is to assist in educating people and getting them interested in animals and conserving the environment they live in. I hope that my photographs and research will shed some light on how important these animals are to our world. I enjoy most animals but believe that since reptiles and amphibians probably get misunderstood the most I should teach about conserving them. Once people learn to love the animals with undeserving bad reputations, the harmless ones should be easy.


Some Biography Info:         

      I was born on March 25, 1982. In 2005 I completed my bachelor's of science degree with a double major in biology at Northeastern State University in Oklahoma and my master's degree in biology at the University of Texas at Tyler in 2007.     

      When I am not studying at a university I am usually traveling and finding snakes, frogs, and other animals. I enjoy visiting remote places in search of interesting species. Here is my herp lifelist.

       My ultimate goal is to get a professor/curator position at a university and/or museum to teach while continuing research.
