Invertebrate systematics research
Our research seeks to emphasise the systematics of insects and other land invertebrates using morphological and molecular approaches.
The specific groups we cover include, Phasmatodea (stick insects), Coleoptera (beetles), Hymenoptera (parasitoids), Acari (mites), Lepidoptera (Moths and butterflies).
We are also investigating biogeography, phylogeography, and speciation in land invertebrates.
