There have been dozens of people involved in this project and each has played important roles. Below are brief bios of three of the main contributors.
Jason L. Brown. I am currently an assistant professor and researcher at Southern Illinois University. My research group is broadly interested in the factors that create and maintain the endless forms of biodiversity on earth. In my free time, I enjoy genealogies, woodworking, folk music, and fossil hunting. I’ve also been a longtime fan of strategy board games. My current top 5 board games are: Lewis & Clark, Five Tribes, Concordia, Suburbia, and San Juan
Morgan Muell. I’m an evolutionary biologist studying poison frog color pattern evolution. I’m also an Iowa native, casual reptile enthusiast, and musician in my spare time. My favorite board games are Biosphere and Pandemic, but like many people, I’m always down for a cutthroat round of Settlers of Catan.
