About the author:  I, Chad Lee, recieved my B.Sc. from Sul Ross State University in Alpine Texas in 1995.  Pursued my graduate degree at West Texas A&M University in Canyon Texas in fall 95 spring 96 as a Graduate Teaching Assistant with the Biology Department. Returned for Fall 04.  Dr. David Sissom as advisor.  During my college years I’ve been a field research assistant to Dr. Sissom at Big Bend Ranch State Park in the early-mid 90s studying and collecting data for scorpion population dynamics in BBRSP.  During my Graduate years, Kari McWest came on board with WT and we have maintained a good friendship over the years.  We both had great times at BBRSP.  In 2005, Dr. Sissom, Kari McWest, Lee Gervais and myself teamed up with Dr. Oscar Francke and students in Chihuahua City, Chihuahua for collecting and catalog’en of voucher scorpion specimens for AMNH in New York for the Vaejovidae project.  Two weeks collecting through Chihuahua, Durango and part of Zacatecas was an great event.  View the powerpoint at the AMNH site.

I have attended two American Arachnology Conferences and three American Tarantula Conferences.

About the WebSites:  I developed my original site with Yahoo-Geocities nearly 8 years ago titled Scorpions from the Chihuahuan Desert Region of Mexico and the United States.  I also started the Scorpion SiteRing with Bravenet.com. 

Yahoo Geocities in late October 09 merged into Yahoo Small Business.  Doing so have thus created the domain name:  www.desert-scorpions.com .
