Ronald M. Nowak, Zoologist (retired) РView Bio

Ronald M. Nowak (Ron) retired from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1998 and currently is active in conservation, mammalogy, writing, and editing. His work in the 1960s and 1970s led to recognition of the red wolf as a distinct but endangered species and to the rediscovery and conservation of the Florida panther. As a staff biologist in the former Office of Endangered Species, his research and regulatory development was responsible for the addition of western wolves and grizzly bears, the jaguar in the U.S., the Louisiana black bear, and many other animals to the federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife. He is author of numerous academic and popular pieces on wolf taxonomy and other subjects, as well as 11 books, mostly with the Johns Hopkins University Press, including three editions of Walker’s Mammals of the World and a 2018 update thereof. He received a B.A. in history and political science from Tulane University and a Ph.D. in biology from the University of Kansas.
