History pre-Darwin post-Darwin view talk ... edit Herpetology (from Greek herpeton , "creeping animal" and λόγος, logos , "knowledge") is the branch of zoology concerned with the study of reptiles and amphibians . Many biologists use the term " herp " or "herptiles" for all reptiles and amphibians. Herpetology is concerned with poikilothermic, or cold-blooded , tetrapods. "Herps" include reptiles and amphibians , but exclude fish. However, it is not uncommon for herpetological and ichthyological scientific societies to "team up", publishing joint journals and holding joint conferences in order to foster the exchange of ideas between the fields. The most prestigious herpetology societies is an example of this - the American Society for Ichthyology and Herpetology. Herpetology offers benefits to humanity in the study of the role of amphibians and reptiles in global ecology , especially because amphibians are often very sensitive to environmental changes, offering a visible warning to humans that significant changes are taking place. Some toxins and venoms produced by reptiles and amphibians are useful in human medicine. Currently, some snake venom has been used to create

    CAREERS IN HERPETOLOGY Herpetology is the study of amphibians and reptiles. There are many exciting and rewarding career choices for people interested in herpetology. All herpetologists are first biologists, with a good knowledge of general biology, who have a specialized knowledge of amphibians and reptiles. Herpetologists include people with advanced academic degrees, non-scientists who work with amphibians and reptiles for a living, and people who pursue herpetology as an avocation. All herpetologist share two traits: (a) a strong interest in one or more kinds of amphibians and reptiles, and (b) the persistence and determination necessary to be successful at doing what they want to do. Unfortunately, there are not many jobs directly related to herpetology, and even a well-trained individual may find it necessary to accept a position removed from his or her prime area of interest. The following sections outline some of the major career directions and the training necessary to pursue them. WHAT DO HERPETOLOGISTS DO?

The lecture component consists of three areas: (1) Systematics, Biogeography, and Genetics, (2) Population and Community Ecology, and (3) Behavior and Physiology. The lab component covers morphology, diversity, and taxonomy with emphasis on the local fauna. Field trips are included. Philosophy: Read our manifesto about teaching herpetology, posted on the Pianka lab web site.

The two groups of animals are only distantly related but have traditionally been placed together as a research discipline, particularly in museums. The herpetology collection of the Australian Museum is extensive and broadly based, and includes a number of specimens of historical significance. Research at the Museum in recent years has focused on lizards, the richest and most diverse group of reptiles in Australia. Scientific information and oversight was provided for Herpetology by Ross Sadlier and Allen Greer.

herpetology resources, information, and concervation of reptiles and amphibians in the northwest.
Herpetology in the Northwest
The Northwest is full of wildlife, but the most overlooked species is the herp population. This site is dedicated to the education and awareness of Snakes, Lizards, Frogs, and Turtles of the Northwest region of the United States. The vision is to inspire the Northwest community to create a better future for Reptiles and Amphibians.
Herp Highlight
Rubber Boa (Charina bottae)
Looks rubbery, quite small, short broad snout and blunt tail give it a two-headed snake appearance! More Info.
Facts that Bite!
Oregon is home to many endangered, threatened and sensitive species. These total at 35 Mamals, 65 Birds, 36 Reptiles and Amphibians, 40 Fish, 3 Butterflies and 42 Invertabrates.
Get involved in Herpetology!
The Northwest which includes Washington, Idaho, and Oregon provides the perfect habitat for some of the best creatures that walk this planet. Becoming involved gets you and others around you involved protecting these reptiles and amphibians of the great Northwest! Herpetology as a hobbie or for conservation, this site provides you the resources to get started! Get into Action
About Herpetology Northwest Conservation
Herpetology Northwest really believes in the importance of preserving the habitats of the Northwest reptiles and amphibians. The only way this is possible is through education at all levels. It is our responsibility to observe, study and learn about all species that reside in the northwest! Through our own education and understanding the more we can do to educate others to guarantee a healthy future for all species. If we don't take action now, we are going to pay the ultimate price.
