After a 30-year career at UM, Dr. Keiser retired in 2005 from the Dept. of Biology, where he was a professor and department chair.  Dr. Keiser remains active in the Department, teaching part-time. He also does contract work for the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks, the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the U.S. Army National Guard. 

Dr. Keiser is knowledgeable on amphibians and reptiles and previously has written Field Station guides on salamanders, frogs, snakes, and turtles.  In addition, Ed is a superb and energetic field naturalist that is continually on the move and frequently visits the Field Station, as he has done since the station was established in the mid-1980s, to look for animals to study or photograph.  Dr. Keiser is a real community resource and we deeply appreciate his volunteer efforts to help others by preparing this series of field guides.

Space is limited, so UM faculty, staff, and students wishing to attend should register online at

Lunch will be provided.
