His principal interest concerns the natural history of reptiles, particularly snakes. He has written widely on the subject of herpetology, including several scientific papers and a recently co-authored book on Neutropical boas, and serves as a council member of the British Herpetological Society. His studies in Belize are ongoing. John Meyer is a research herpetologist and biogeographer who has a long-standing affiliation with Central American herpetology. Among his numerous publications he is credited with having written many scientific papers on Mexican and Central American reptiles and amphibians. He co-authored the comprehensive Snakes of Honduras, and is co-author of a recently published Guide to the Frogs and Toads of Belize. He currently coordinates the Maya Forest Anuran Monitoring Project (MAYAMON) in this region.
