About your Instructor:     Mike Cardwell is a consulting biologist with the Arizona Poison and Drug Information Center and an adjunct research associate at San Diego State University. Mike earned his MS with a thesis examining the behavioral response of rattlesnakes to drought. He is an editor of The Biology of Rattlesnakes, a 600-page compilation of contributions by 90 scientists and physicians, and he has authored or coauthored dozens of scientific and medical publications about venomous creatures, including the Wilderness Medical Society’s treatment guidelines for pitviper envenomations and the Mohave Rattlesnake species account in Rattlesnakes of Arizona. His own non-technical book, The Mohave Rattlesnake and How It Became an Urban Legend, was published in 2020. He currently studies variation in rattlesnake venom and how it affects human snakebite patients, and he uses radiotelemetry to study the biology and behavior of wild rattlesnakes.
