Trevor Beebee took a PhD in biochemistry at the University of Sussex, where he became a lecturer and, in 2003, professor of molecular ecology. Over the years he pursued a combined interest in research and conservation, mostly concerning amphibians (especially natterjack toads) but also with some work on reptiles. Latterly he became especially concerned about genetic aspects of conservation and the risks of population isolation and inbreeding depression. He has published over 150 scientific papers, more than 30 articles and several books on amphibians and reptiles
