James Kezer

James Kezer is an emeritus professor of biology at the University of Oregon. A world authority on salamander chromosomes, Dr. Kezer did pioneering work in the field of amphibian cytogenetics. He is also an excellent field naturalist, a calling no doubt aided by having spent the summers of 1951 and 1952 in Crater Lake National Park.
