After doctoral and post-doctoral studies at the University of Michigan, Larry spent 20 years with The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and 6 years with NatureServe, most of that time as their Chief Zoologist. NatureServe is an offshoot of the Conservancy and is the umbrella organization for the network of natural heritage programs and conservation data centers in every U.S. state and Canadian province as well as in many Latin American countries. Larry started several of these programs (e.g., MI, NH, VT) and also oversaw the development of TNC’s and NatureServe’s central zoological databases and revisions to the Network’s Conservation Status Assessment methodology.
Larry co-authored Rivers of Life: Critical Watersheds for Protecting Freshwater Biodiversity. He has also authored numerous other publications and chapters in several books (e.g., Precious Heritage, Our Living Resources). In his retirement, he serves on boards of the Adirondack Explorer, the Ausable River Association, and the Northern Forest Atlas Foundation, as well as on the Center for Ecostudies Science Advisory Council, The Biodiversity Conservancy’s Advisory Board, NatureServe’s Strategic Advisors Council, and the American Society of Mammalogists’ Mammal Images Library.
