  BACKGROUND

 

Pauley_on_Mountain.jpg

Herpetology at Marshall began in the 1930's under the direction of Dr. N. Bayard Green.  Since then, herpetology in WV has become widely known and studied due to the rich diversity of amphibians and reptiles in the region.  Of the group, salamanders are the most diverse, with 34 species in the area.  Dr. Thomas K. Pauley has conducted numerous herpetological studies since the 1960's, focusing on research in WV.  This site is designed to provide information about the herpetofauna in WV and the field studies and research of Dr. Pauley and his graduate students.
