Who is Who of Identifiers

Who is Who of Identifiers

Postby Eckart Stolle on 28 Feb 2009, 14:56

As the number of specialist and advanced users is growing it might be the right time to let others know who you are and what your experience is. We believe this would have the advantage that everyone is able to assess the "quality/reliability" of the identifications and that sort of things.
So if u like leave a short note who you are and what you working on.

Cheers

I think that moderators could post their profiles too :-)
OK, I am Libor Dvorak from the Czech Republic. My specialisation are Vespidae, mainly social wasps (Polistinae and Vespinae, partly Stenogastrinae). I prefer North American, European, and Asian species mainly because of presence of relevant references and keys. I wish to understand to social wasps worldwide, but it requires little more time than I have :-)

AH LIBOR, you come among Ichneumonologists
Welcome :lol: !

I am Julia Stigenberg, a PhD student at Stockholm University and Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm.
I study the systematics of Euphorinae (Braconidae). Currently revising the genera Meteorus and Zele using morphological and molecular methods. I have earlier worked with sorting Malaisetraps for two summers all the way from insect orders to subfamilylevel of the Braconidae. I'm looking for other Braconidae specialists - if there are any out there - to get in contact with.

My name is Pelle Magnusson, biologist, from Sweden.
My interest are ichneumonids, esp tryphoninae (which I have recently started to struggle with). I'm working in the "Swedish Malaise trap project" (SMTP), as a ichneumonid-sorter to subfamily. I'm also looking for good taxonomists, esp. in hymenoptera, ESP. ichneumonidae.

Well, most things are said here already (Forum Info: viewtopic.php?f=14&t=932). Further info here (http://www.mol-ecol.uni-halle.de/staff/stolle-e/). I'm working on a genetic map of the bumble bee Bombus terrestris and also on some population genetics projects with honeybees and other bumble bees. Furthermore i'm interested in functional and comparative genomics, phylogeny, phylogeography, speciation processes and evolution of the Hymenoptera, evolution, modes of sociality and caste determination in aculeate Hymenoptera, coevolution of hosts and their parasites and finally taxonomy of aculeate Bees and Wasps. During the last 10 years i worked on the german/mid-europe fauna (Chrysididae, Pompilidae, Crabronidae, Sphecidae, Sapygidae, Scoliidae, Tiphiidae, Mutillidae, Evanoidea, Chalcididae), but thats expanding now.

Ok, a few infos about me: I work with Aculeata wasps and bees for 23 years now. Until 1998, I did a lot of resarch in Central Europe with a main focus on nature conservation, ecology and fauna. I published some Red Data books, identification keys (Andrena, Eumeninae, Mutillidae etc.) and many other topics (see http://www.bembix.de for more info). Also, I founded and edited the journal "bembix" for more than 10 years.

In 1998, I left the field of professional Entomology and moved to a job in Industry. For about 7 years now, I work as a freelance trainer in communication (http://www.schmid-egger.de) . I also changed my entomological interests and set my focus on Taxonomy of "Sphecids" and Pompilidae in the Palaearcic region. I revised some important genera, as Bembecinus, Gorytes etc. For the moment I work on a really challanging project, the Sphecid fauna of the United Arab Emirates. Because of lack of time, I minimized Aculeata research in Central Europe in the last years, with exception of the Alps, what is my most likely region beside deserts for collecting and beeing. I live in Germans capital Berlin, with a beautifull and rich nature around, even rich in Hymenoptera species.

With the new possibilites in development of internet and macro photography, we startet the http://www.hymis.de project with our special hymenoptera gallery on http://www.galerie.hymis.de, and I am proud that we growed within two years now to the world largest Hymenoptera photo gallery in the web. And it is still growing...

My interest in this forum (and in my scientific work) is mainly qualitiy, and also an easy transfer from scientific knowledge to public knowlege. With this, I wish to all of us many fun and success here in the forum.

My name is Robert Nash I curate the insect collections at the Belfast Museum, Ireland.These include the early Ichneumonidae collections of Jim Brock and authoritatively determined Irish Hymenoptera, mainly Ichneumonidae. I also work on the collections of the National Museum in Dublin especially on the type material of Alexander Henry Haliday (1807–1870), John Curtis (1791-1862), Francis Walker (1809–1874) and other early entomologists.In addition I author Wikipedia pages on entomology. I prefer to work with the aid of reliably determined museum material (in conjunction with keys and monographs) since the literature is very poorly illustrated. My philosophy is 1.Taxonomic entomology is a very visual science and photography is a now vital component especially comparison photos in electronic keys 2. Science is for all.The page http://www.habitas.org.uk/staff/rnash.html lists my publications and includes an old photograph taken when my eyesight was better than it is now.

My Name is Toshko Ljubomirov. I work at the Institute of zoology in Sofia (Bulgaria) where i havea position of a curator of the invertebrate collections. My primary interest and field of research are Mutillid and Crabronid wasps in Palaearctic. I am happy if i could be of any help in quick and prompt identification of picture material in the present forum.

Currently I'm interested in the Afrotropical Pteromalidae, so I would be very grateful for any specimens :)

Chalcidbear= Bob Zuparko. I work in two institutions (1. Essig Museum of Entomology at University of California, Berkeley, and 2. California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco) both in California, USA. Consequently, I am most familiar with the Nearctic fauna, especially Chalcidoidea, but the Encyrtidae is my true area of interest (note that I did not use the term "expertise").

My name is Anthony Daglio and I am an independant researcher from Connecticut. I have been studying the Taxonomy, Distribution, Behavior, and Nesting biology of yellowjacket species and subspecies (Dolichovespula, Vespula) worldwide. In the coarse of my studies I have found several new forms new to science. Currently I am in the process of writing a book on the species and subspecies of yellowjackets worldwide based on my studies. This book will contain an illustrated key to all species, full descriptions and color photos of each species, and information on behavior and biology of each species. A link to my website can be found here: http://independent.academia.edu/AnthonyDaglio I am highly interested in the little studied or rare species of Dolichovespula and Vespula especially from Asia. If anyone has any information, photos or reviews on any of the lesser known yellowjackets feel free to message me :)
