Dr Robert Jehle is population biologist with an unexplainable fondness for amphibians, ponds, and rainforests. After completing his PhD in Zoology at the University of Vienna (Austria) he obtained an EU Marie Curie post-doctoral fellowship to conduct research at the Molecular Ecology Laboratory of the University of Sheffield. He then pursued my research and teaching with temporary academic positions at Sheffield and the University of Bielefeld (Germany), before arriving at the University of Salford in 2008.
Robert’s main research area revolves around the ecology, behaviour and evolution of amphibians at the level of populations. A main focus covers the documentation of spatial and temporal population processes using genetic markers, and the use of genetic information to document mating systems. His support and involvement in the research aspect of Project Lemur Frog is crucial to its success.
