VINCENTE MATA-SILVA is a herpetologist interested in ecology,
conservation, and the monitoring of amphibians and reptiles in Mexico and the southwestern United
States. His bachelor’s thesis compared herpetofaunal richness in Puebla, México, in habitats with
different degrees of human related disturbance. Vicente’s master’s thesis focused primarily on the
diet of two syntopic whiptail species of lizards, one unisexual and the other bisexual, in the
Trans-Pecos region of the Chihuahuan Desert. Currently, he is a postdoctoral research fellow at the
University of Texas at El Paso, where his work focuses on rattlesnake populations in their natural
habitat. His dissertation was on the ecology of the rock rattlesnake, Crotalus lepidus, in
the northern Chihuahuan Desert. To date, Vicente has authored or co-authored 34 peer-reviewed
