My list of the top salamander researchers in the USA:
- Andrew Blaustein, Oregon State University An expert on amphibian declines, Dr. Blaustein is consistently interviewed magazines such as Nature and Discover.
- David Wake, University of California at Berkeley Every time I turn around he seems to be discovering a new species. He recently described two new species Costa Rican salamander species.
- James Petranka,The University of North Carolina at Asheville Dr. Petranka is the author of the Handbook of Salamanders, the massive handbook describing the plentiful salamanders species found in North America.
