Lee Grismer - Natural History Publications
Spectacular Species and Tropical Isles
In the modern day tradition of early explorers to Malaysia, Dr. Lee Grismer stands out as a naturalist with the passion and persistence of the old timers.
After spending 25 years in the deserts of Baja California, Lee Grismer came to Malaysia to transform his science career and discover a new world in the rainforests and tropical islands of Malaysia.
Reptiles and amphibians are fascinating creatures that do not gain the attention of megafauna like tigers and orangutans. Nonetheless, these colorful and cryptic species show remarkable evolutionary traits that signal their adaptation to disturbed habitats and the pressures of competition with animals and humans.
Dr. Grismer and his team of students and Malaysian counterparts have explored all 62 islands that make up the Seribuat Archipelago in the South China Sea, as well as, combed the forested landscapes of Peninsular Malaysia from Perlis to Singapore.
Despite the onslaught of modern progress, Malaysia remains a biological haven. In 15 years of field research, the Grismer expeditions have led to over 260 new island records and 55 new species. That is a wonderful achievement for science and the planet.
Lee Grismer's two new books on the natural history of Malaysia are not just a collection of reptile photos, but a rich description of the Malaysian environment with timely insights into ecology, biogeography and conservation.
