Keynote Speaker – Professor Gary Ferguson

Gary Ferguson grew up in southeastern Virginia where he became fascinated with reptiles and amphibians from a young age. He sought a career path in teaching and research; initially his emphasis was on the behavior and evolutionary ecology of lizards and subsequently on their husbandry. For the last 3 decades he has, along with several colleagues, explored the importance of the ultraviolet-light environment and dietary vitamin D in lizard husbandry. Major contributions on this topic include the discovery of UV/vitamin D photo-regulation and the documentation of four UV zones occupied by a number of species in their natural environment.
