Professor Juterbock has been a faculty member at The Ohio State University at Lima since 1979, and he is the Coordinator of the Biology baccalaureate program at OSU-Lima.  He teaches, or has taught over the years, all of our introductory level biology courses, including the Honors Biology sequence, and courses in anatomy, anatomy and physiology, animal diversity, animal form and function, ecology, environmental science (introductory and second writing courses), ethology, and vertebrate biology.  A two-time winner of the OSU-Lima Distinguished Teaching Award, he won The Ohio State University Alumni Award for Distinguished Teaching in 2002.


Dr. Juterbock is a behavioral ecologist and conservation biologist, working with vertebrate animals.  His two spheres of research interest are the occurrence and evolutionary significance of variation in life history characteristics, primarily among salamanders, and the community ecology of frogs and snakes in the Everglades.  Currently, he is working on several aspects of life history of stream salamanders in southeastern Ohio, and frog population and community biology locally.  Most quarters, he directs students’ independent research projects; several have been presented at national conferences.  He has authored/co-authored chapters in Status and Conservation of Midwestern Amphibians, Amphibian Declines: The Conservation Status of United States Species, and  Status and Conservation of North American Amphibians.  He also conducts pro bono biological survey work (e.g., Ohio Frog Call Survey transect in Marion County, ongoing).
