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).
