Research Interests

Systematics, biology, and zoogeography of Canacidae, and Ephydroidea, with special emphasis on Ephydridae

For over 40 years, I have focused on the systematics and evolution of higher Diptera (true flies), especially families in the Ephydroidea and Opomyzoidea. My research primarily employs the methodology of cladistic analysis to unravel, reconstruct, and document phylogenetic relationships and how these relationships impinge on historical biogeography. The phylogenetic investigations and analyses run the gamut from species-level revisions to basal lineages of superfamilies. Documentation includes comprehensive systematics studies at all levels of the classification, faunistic studies, catalogs and conspectuses. Although my comprehensive studies are global, I have focused field work in the neotropics, especially the Caribbean, and on islands, such as Sri Lanka, the Seychelles, New Zealand, and the barrier islands of Belize.
