Areas of InterestIn biology, my interests revolve around systematics—taxonomy, classification, phylogenetics, biogeography—but anything to do with evolution and ecology intrigues me. I get a kick out of writing about these things. I mainly study insects, but love examining all groups of organisms. My love of birds and botany, for instance, has produced life-long interests in birding and gardening. I enjoy traveling. I read a lot—in addition to biology, mostly history (and historical fiction), biography, travel writing and poetry. What else? Good food. Good wine. Walking and hiking. Nature conservation. Photography. Drawing. Jazz. Museums. People.
