Atlas Contributors

Over 500 people contributed a total of 8,154 records to the Massachusetts Herp Atlas. Tremendous efforts by a handful of people made a huge difference to the project; the top twenty contributors accounted for more than half of the records.

Heading up our Herp Atlas Hall of Fame are two individuals, David Ludlow and Robert Parkard, whose total of 2,184 records represent outstanding contributions to the project. Not only did they submit a whole lot of records, their identifications were invariably accurate and their photographs a pleasure to review (except for some of the roadkill).
