For the past two decades, Bill has been studying the natural history, biogeography, taxonomy and evolution of mammals of eastern Africa.  He has focused on the rodent and shrew populations in the mountainous regions within Tanzania and has discovered several new species.  This work is vital to understand how mammal populations in Tanzania change over time.

Science at FMNH : Ep. 26 - Mammal Conservation in Island Ecosystems

Larry and a team of international collaborators began their research in the Philippines in 1981, and together they have discovered dozens of previously unknown species of mammals.  This research has helped to promote the declaration of several national parks, and has helped to improve the management of many others. With funding from the MacArthur Foundation, he worked with Filipino colleagues to establish the Wildlife Conservation Society of the Philippines in 1992.
