J.D. Willson, who received his Ph.D. from the UGA Odum School of Ecology in 2009, is a post-doctoral research associate at the Savannah River Ecology Laboratory (SREL), where he studies semi-aquatic snake population and community dynamics and ecology of invasive Burmese pythons.  But it is Willson’s growing reputation as a wildlife photographer that was the subject of a profile that appeared in the Augusta Chronicle on Feb. 27, 2010.  The Chronicle reports that Willson’s photographs have appeared in or on the covers of numerous publications, including the journals Southeastern Naturalist, Journal of Zoology, and BioScience; in magazines including Reptiles, National Wildlife, and Charleston Magazine; and in the books Turtles: The Animal Answer Guide, Snakes: Ecology and Conservation, The Frogs and Toads of North Carolina, Snakes of the Southeast, and Lizards in an Evolutionary Tree: Ecology and Adaptive Radiation of Anoles.
