Rich Legg
If you have come this far looking for me, you have come a moment or two late, as I retired at the end of spring semester 2012 after decades of thinking, talking and doing evolution and field biology, and generally having a ball with very many students. 

If you're a current Ambrose student who would like to discuss a research project or get advice, please feel free to contact me.  An email link is located to the right, and all of the current faculty know under which rock to look to find me.  If you're a former student of mine, drop me an email and let me hear of your exploits and accomplishments.

Godspeed to all.
