NASRULLAH RASTEGAR-POUYANI earned his
B.S. in Zoology in 1986 from Razi University Kermanshah, Islamic Republic of
Iran, and his M.S. in Zoology in 1991 from Tehran University, where he studied herpetology
with a special focus on agamids. He
received his Ph.D. in 1999 from Gothenburg University, Sweden, under
the supervision of Professor Göran Nilson, working
on taxonomy and biogeography of Iranian Plateau agamids, specificallyTrapelus. Since 1996, he has described numerous new taxa of
lizards (mainly geckonids, agamids, and lacertids) from the Iranian Plateau. His research
interests include taxonomy and biogeography of the herpetofuana of the Iranian Plateau, and
in general the Middle East and Central Asia. Nasrullah is currently Head of the Department of
Biology, Faculty of Science, Razi University, where he supervises several M.S. and Ph.D.
students. Nasrullah co-manages the Conservation Breeding Program for two species of
Critically Endangered newts in Iran, the Kurdistan newt (Neurergus microspilotus) and the Loristan newt
