Jeff Davis, an educator and Adjunct Research Associate in Herpetology and Ichthyology at the Cincinnati Museum Center has worked as a consultant for local, state, and federal agencies and private industries for 18 years.  His focus has been on Ohio’s Frogs and Toads, Cave Salamanders, and several species of Ohio reptiles.  He has conducted amphibian surveys in all 88 Ohio counties resulting in the recent publication of a book, Amphibians of Ohio.
