Biography

Dr. Robert Drewes is Curator of the Department of Herpetology at the California Academy of Sciences. He completed his undergraduate degree at San Francisco State and his Ph.D. in Biology at UCLA, focusing on the evolutionary relationships of the dominant treefrog family of Africa, Madagascar, and the Seychelles Islands. His graduate career at UCLA also instilled an ongoing fascination with environmental physiology (the study of how individual organisms physically interact with the environment).

Drewes' ongoing research on the systematics, natural history, and behavior of African reptiles and amphibians began with a year-long trip to East Africa in 1969.
