I'm a biologist in the Department of Biological Sciences at Tarleton State University. I have a life-long interest in natural history and broad experience including paleontology, wildlife biology, and population and evolutionary genetics. I don't consider myself to be an expert in anything, but I'm interested in almost everything.

I manage the iNaturalist project for the Timberlake Biological Field Station in Mills County, TX. Our goal is to develop a comprehensive inventory of species at the field station to inform and guide future research projects

Taxa I've been focusing on

I enjoy learning how to distinguish groups of related species and helping to curate them here on iNaturalist. Taxa that I've been curating include:



Projects and stuff

Timberlake bioblitz events

ID guides created by other folks

iNat Tips & Tricks

I recommend not agreeing to an ID just because someone else gave that ID--only ID things based on your OWN knowledge and research.
