Ohio Herpetologists

Certainly incomplete, this is my attempt at a directory of the people currently involved in research and/or conservation of Ohio's amphibian and reptiles. Please contact me with additions or corrections to this work in progress. 
I also have a list of herpetological groups in Ohio, here.
