Dr. Kurt A. Buhlmann is a conservation ecologist whose research interests include life history and evolutionary ecology with application for conservation and management of amphibians and reptiles.
He has worked with non-profit, state, and federal agencies on habitat management projects, including prescribed fire and wetlands restoration. He has been involved in international turtle conservation efforts, and is more recently actively focused on reintroduction and head-starting projects for tortoises and freshwater turtles in North America, as well as Kihansi spray toads, in Tanzania, Africa.
