Roger Thoma was a biologist and conservationist for nearly 50 years. Roger worked with the Midwest Biodiversity Institute for nearly 17 years as the Crayfish Conservation Biologist. Prior to this he worked for the Ohio EPA for 22 years as an Environmental Scientist where, among plenty of other things, he developed IBI and QHEI methodologies for Lake Erie and assisted with IBI development for Ohio rivers and streams. He has a tireless dedication to conservation and his passion for nature.  Although his primary focus is Crayfish, he is a skilled naturalist with a broad knowledge of flora and fauna. During his career, he worked on the description of sixteen (16) news species of crayfish either as senior author or co-author.
