Herp Group

IB 234 Seminar on Biology of Amphibians and Reptiles (a.k.a. Herp Group) is a graduate-level seminar series based on current and recent herpetological research. We celebrated our 50th Anniversary in 2019! Each meeting typically begins with a review of recent publications followed by a presentation or led discussion by a participant or invited guest. Presentation of works in progress and research plans for comment is encouraged. Advanced undergraduates wishing to take the course for credit should ask before signing up; all are welcome to attend meetings.
