Don Chandler, Ph.D.

Collection Director

As an entomologist and curator of the University insect collection, I am broadly interested in biodiversity ofall insects. I have maintained my research on the systematics of two beetle groups, the Anthicidae and Pselaphinae (Staphylinidae) in North America, Central America, New Zealand, and Australia, while also carrying on applied biodiversity studies in forest entomology, and aquatic entomology. These studies have focused on documenting changes in the insect fauna of unique or old-growth forest habitats in New England, Costa Rica, and Australia for comparisons of sites that that have been extensively disturbed. Research in aquatic entomology has pursued characterization of the stream faunas and their seasonality in New England.
