ANNA GAWOR completed her master thesis at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Bonn in collaboration with the Cologne Zoo and the Institute of Ecology and Biological Resources in Hanoi, Vietnam in 2011, focusing on the biodiversity of the herpetofauna of the Bai Tu Long National Park. Since 2007, she has been involved in various projects at the Cologne Zoo dealing with tropical batrachology, resulting so far in five scientific publications. Her interests comprise systematics, ecology, and diversity of amphibians, in particular reproduction of anurans, monitoring of larval development as well as larval morphology.
