About this book

Herpetology at Kansas represents a substantial and critical chapter in the history of the discipline of herpetology. It chronicles the people-faculty and students alike-who have contributed to maintaining and expanding KU's herpetology program and details their lives, education, research, and field-work. It also describes how a true institutional program, one that transcends individuals, was created and sustained over such a long period through innovative planning and social development. Also, it provides an insider's in-depth review of the many successes as well as plans that went awry or even courted disaster. It is liberally illustrated with 440 photographs.
