My interests in entomology include the systematics, biogeography, and ecology of the beetle family Scarabaeidae (sens. lat.). I'm presently working on Part 3 of The Scarab beetles of Florida and have finished The insects of Grenada; checklist and bibliography published by the Center for Systematic Entomology. Since retirement from the FSCA in 1988, I've worked in the Lesser Antilles for FAO/UN and have extensive collections available for loan. Current projects include the establishment of a biological research station (Bio-Eco-Dom) in the Dominican Republic; descriptions of several new species of termitophilous and myrmecophilous scarabs; Phyllophaga of the Bahamas; and description of many new insect fossils from Dominican amber. Currently serve on the Board of Directors of the Center for Systematic Entomology.
