My name is Will Selman, and I am an associate professor of Biology at Millsaps College in Jackson, MS. My research broadly focuses on (1) understanding vertebrate life history and ecology (mostly herps) and (2) using this information to guide conservation and management decisions. I also conduct species status surveys for rare reptile and amphibian species. As a long-term research project, I am currently writing the field guide, "Amphibians and Reptiles of Mississippi."

As a field biologist, I value experiential learning and "learning by doing". This strategy provides better student engagement and deeper learning opportunities (and often good times too!). Such experiences include taking field trips to natural areas, identifying specimens to hone diagnostic skills, class field projects, and learning field techniques. My students also use iNaturalist to curate and make species collections for various classes.
