He teaches one semester of the introductory sequence for Biology majors and preprofessional students, lecture and laboratory course in vertebrate zoology and ecology, and a year-long seminar that introduces first-year students to scientific research. Professor Hertz is an animal physiological ecologist with a specific research interest in the thermal biology of lizards. He has conducted fieldwork in the West Indies since the mid-1970s, most recently focusing on the lizards of Cuba. His work has been funded by the National Science Foundation, and he has published his research in such prestigious journals as "The American Naturalist, Ecology, Nature, Oecologia," and "Proceedings of the Royal Society."
