Scott A Thomson


After completing my BSc in Zoology in 1997 I began a MSc on the evolutionary relationships of Chelid Turtles. I have been working on turtles ever since having now described 5 species and a genus of turtles. My specialty has become taxonomy and nomenclature and I am heavily involved in nomenclatural issues with turtles. I have published 2 cases with the ICZN and am a contributing member for ZooBank.
