Nicholas A. Cairns

I'm a biologist (MSc, PhD) with a deep interest in natural history. I love solving biological puzzles and trying to understand how animals make a living where they do. I feed this interest by delving into questions of ecology, behavior and biogeography. Beyond intrinsic knowledge, when possible I use the information derived from these questions to inform conservation. I have a taxonomic bias towards reptiles and amphibians but have experience with taxa as varied as bees and tiger sharks. I am also a husband and father of two trying to raise little naturalists in the Northern Great Plains.
