Wetland Ecology and Herpetology
Dr. Karraker teaches Wetland Ecology and Herpetology every year. These classes have a significant field component. Below are some images from previous classes.
Field Experience in Herpetology (West Virginia)
Each year, Dr. Karraker takes a class to West Virginia. There we meet our spectacular host, Dr. Tom Pauley of Marshall University, for four days of rolling logs, turning stones, and wading in streams and ponds in search of the great amphibian and reptile diversity for which West Virginia is known. We camp with a beautiful view of Seneca Rocks and hunt our quarry from about 9 a.m. until midnight (or beyond) each day. Each year, we find worm snakes, ring-necked snakes, green snakes, hellbenders, green salamanders, slimy salamanders, and loads of other species. We also amass quite a species list while birdwatching with Dr. Pauley on one morning. Some highlights from our trip are posted below.
