Dr. Lance McBrayer
Curator of Herpetology
Associate Dean of Faculty & Research Programs


Research in my lab focuses on the ecology and evolution of lizards. My research integrates morphological, ecological, and behavioral analyses to understand how organisms cope with ecological challenges and how key traits evolve. Research projects in my lab general focus on traits related to locomotion and feeding.

I am also the curator of our herpetology collection. This is the second largest collection of its kind in the  state and is a valuable scientific and public resource.
