We have been conducting zoological field research in various parts of Africa, the Middle East, Mediterranean, and Central and Eastern Europe.

Over the past decade, Vašek has been working mainly in Central Africa in both montane forests of the Cameroon Volcanic Line (Cameroon) and lowland rainforests of the Congo Basin (DR Congo, Rep. Congo, Cameroon).

Vašek has also explored and done herpetological fieldwork in several montane forests in the Eastern Arc Mountains in Tanzania, East Africa.

was supported by Neuron
