KU Researcher to Present Seminar at SWOSU this Wednesday

Dr. David McLeod 

Dr. David McLeod from the University of Kansas will present a seminar entitled “Cryptic Diversity or Taxonomic Laziness?” this Wednesday, February 27, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

The presentation is at 4 p.m. in Room 212 of the Old Science Building. The public is invited.

Dr. McLeod’s research interests focus on the morphology, systematics and ecology of amphibians and reptiles. The overarching goal of his research efforts is to make practical contributions towards conservation efforts and an understanding of biodiversity in regions where diversity is both underestimated and threatened by environmental and anthropogenic factors.

The SWOSU Department of Biological Sciences is the sponsor of the seminar.
