Nature Notes by Bill Dunson

Bill-DunsonBill Dunson, born in rural Georgia, skipped 12th grade and went directly to Yale. Bill subsequently received a PhD in Zoology from the University of Michigan, studying softshell turtles. Bill is Professor Emeritus of Pennsylvania State University thanks to a career spent entirely at that institution, teaching and doing research on the physiological ecology and ecotoxiciology of reptiles, amphibians and fish. Always curious about nature, Bill has dedicated his life to learning and sharing his knowledge with others. He has served on many advisory boards here in Southwest Florida to preserve the water that gives life to our regionJoin Bill as he walks among wildlife and plant life throughout our neighborhoods here in Southwest Florida and his Virginia Farm. Each month we feature one of Bill’s fascinating and educational nature notes.
