Dr. Dustin S. Siegel has extensive experience in research on the reproductive biology of amphibians and reptiles. Such research includes primarily urogenital morphology of salamanders and squamates, but also includes projects on sperm morphology/physiology, morphology of secondary sexual characteristics, evolution of reproductive cycles, and the odd morphological inquiry into fishes. Dustin was mentored by renowned herpetologists Robert D. Aldridge and David M. Sever during his career as a graduate student. Dustin is currently an Assistant Professor at Southeast Missouri State University in the Department of Biology. In his free time, Dustin enjoys fishing, photography, playing softball, hiking, biking, working on Jeeps, playing with pups, and watching football and baseball.
