Yuval just started his postdoc at the Steinhardt Museum of Natural History on the taxonomy and ecology of Echis coloratus
Yuval did his MSc. (turtle Macroecology; October 2010-December 2012) in the lab before moving to a Ph.D. studying Island biogeography of reptiles in the Greek islands (co supervisor: Prof. PanayiotisPafilis) - the effect of island characteristics on insular fauna
M.Sc. Since October 2015 Natural history of little Israeli reptiles Simon studies the biology of Ophiomorus latastii, Ablepharus ruepellii, Chalcides guentheri, Eirenis decemlineatus, Eirenis lineomaculatus & Micrelaps muelleri. And he cannot talk to you about it, he is in the field (always)
M.Sc. since October 2016 Studies the Macro-ecology of Vertebrate's Longevity. My research focus is on the factors (Abiotic and Biotic) related to intrinsic & extrinsic mortality which shapes the variation in animal longevity.
October 2013-October 2017 My interests lie in reptile ecology, biogeography and conservation. I am particularly interested in the herpetofauna of New Guinea and conducting computer based modelling to elucidate patterns in species richness, range size and turnover. I also conduct field research in Papua New Guinea and intend to assess the effect of elevational gradients on reptile life history traits. (co supervisor: Dr. Allen Allison, Bishop Museum, Hawaii)
