I'm an ecologist who tries his best to specialize in everything, but have only managed to get serious about amphibians, reptiles, birds, plants, insects and lichens. I'm trying hard to learn as much as possible about everything else and the ecosystems they form. I administer a project on iNaturalist "U.P. Herp Survey" that I am using for a book on the biogeography of amphibians and reptiles in Upper Michigan. Your contributions are most welcome! My firm specializes in biodiversity conservation and multi-taxa inventories and monitoring. We also have two beautiful ecolodges in the glorious Upper Peninsula of Michigan designed for nature focused travelers and conduct ecotours. www.BiophiliaNature.com. I serve as a member of the Michigan Amphibian and Reptile Technical Advisory Committee and as a board member of The Ontonagon County Conservation District. I'm always looking for new nature friends and partnerships!
