Rudolf von May, Ph.D.
California State University Channel Islands
Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the Biology Program at CSU Channel Islands. I am broadly interested in ecology, evolution, and conservation of biodiversity. My current research seeks to understand why species live at different elevations, and how they respond to environmental change. Most of my work focuses on the ecology and diversity of amphibians and reptiles, with a main emphasis in the Andes-Amazon region (South America). Additionally, some of my projects and collaborations focus on other organisms and ecosystems including California vernal pools.
