Background:

My research interests include the systematics and biogeography of darkling beetles (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) – a diverse insect family, estimated to include over 20 000 species worldwide. My previous studies has focused on phylogenetics of Afrotropical Platynotina, especially the Ectateus generic group. Presently I have started a project entitled: “The origin of the amphitropic African disjunction: a case study based on wingless darkling beetles (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Melambiina)”. The main aim of this study is to use the information concerning the evolutionary history of the beetles representing subtribe Melambiina to investigate the factors responsible for creating the remarkable amphitropic African disjunctions in ranges of many groups of plants and animals. On the more methodological side, I am interested in incorporating the microCT methods to phylogenetic studies.

Current research projects:

  • The origin of the amphitropic African disjunction: a case study based on wingless darkling beetles (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Melambiina)
  • Phylogeny and biogeography of the trans-Pacific darkling beetle genus Archaeoglenes Broun, 1893 (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae)
  • Evolution and zoogeography of Ectateus generic group (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Platynotina).
  • Elytral cavities of tenebrionid beetles - convergence or divergence? MicroCT analysis of the elytral structure (circulatory and tracheal systems).

Research and activities

1. Part of scientific activities deals with filling of a generation gap of taxonomists by the passing of knowledge of taxonomy of over 5000 species of Salticidae (Araneae) to the next generations of zoologists. The form is an Internet relational database, compendium and catalog: „A monograph of Salticidae (Araneae) of the World”, containing at present 12,061 diagnostic drawings, 1,097 photographs, literature references (to over 1,800 papers), synonyms, geographical distribution, and also evaluation of reliability of data. The “Monograph” is also available in the form of an Internet book in pdf format (3,668 pages). It is considered a primary reference by the Peckham Society.

An extraction from the “Monograph” facilitating studies of fauna of some countries is presented as „Salticidae (Araneae) of selected countries - checklists, keys to genera and diagnostic drawings”, with texts in English, and in some national languages.

2. Another part of activities involves current publication of taxonomic papers on Salticidae (taxonomic revisions, redescriptions and descriptions of new species), mainly from SE Asia.
