Dr. Wilson is a conservation ecologist whose research is focussed on the ecology
and conservation of the critically endangered Jamaican Iguana (Cyclura collei)
and other rare endemic reptile species. His studies include the ecology of the Indian
mongoose, the mortality of the lizard Uta stansburiana, and exotic predator
control in the Hellshire Hills, Jamaica. He was also involved in a survey of the dry
forest herpetofauna of the Hellshire Hills, which resulted in the re-discovery of the
Blue-tailed Galliwasp (Celestus duquesneyi Grant).
