  • Arctic Biodiversity
  • Canopy Arthropod Ecology
  • Generalist Arthropod Predators in Agroecosystems
  • Taxonomy and Ecology

  • Arthropods (including insects, spiders and their relatives) comprise much of the known biodiversity of the planet, and contribute to important ecosystem functions. However, we know very little about what mechanisms explain species diversity of many terrestrial arthropods, and my research program is focused on this. One way to aid in conservation of biodiversity is to learn more about the role of arthropods in important ecosystem processes, and to understand some of the links between habitat features, ecosystem processes and arthropod communities. Good ecology is built upon good taxonomy, and ecologists must strive for accurate species-level identifications, and the value of natural history information cannot be understated.
