Stephen Adolph, PhD, Stuart Mudd Professor of Biology and department chair, specializes in the study of lizards, especially Sceloporus lizards (small insectivorous lizards common in southwestern North America).

His research goals are to understand how the thermal environment influences the physiology and behavior of both individual lizards and lizard populations, and how animals respond to environmental change.

His published articles regarding temperature and its affects on lizard growth, reproduction and survival have implications for how climate change may affect animal populations.
