Patrick Terry


Patrick came to the lab from Ohio University, and was interested in conservation genetics of turtles. His thesis, titled “Elucidating the Status of Michigan’s Red-Eared Slider Turtle: A Phylogeographic Approach,” used genetic methods to assess whether Red-Eared Sliders are native or introduced in Michigan. He graduated in December 2015 and is currently preparing his manuscript for submission to Herpetological Conservation and Biology.

Patrick is now working for Ann Arbor Natural Areas Preservation as the City Herpetologist. He performs species inventory and management and leads citizen science monitoring programs for frogs, toads, salamanders and turtles. You can learn more about what he’s up to by reading this profile in the Ann Arbor Observer.
