Advisory Board and Editors Zoology

William Amos

Professor of Evolutionary Genetics in the Department of Zoology, Cambridge University. Head of the Molecular Ecology Research Group. Former associate editor of Molecular Ecology.

Nigel R. Andrew

My current research interests focus on the impacts that climate change will have on insect behaviour, ecology and physiology; insect community structure along environmental gradients; and insect-plant interactions.
I am currently President of the Ecological Society of Australia and Zoology Museum Curator, University of New England.

Jérémy Anquetin

Researcher at the 'Section d'archéologie et paléontologie', Jura cantonal Cultural Office, Switzerland. Jérémy received his PhD in Vertebrate Palaeontology from the University College London (UCL) and the Natural History Museum (NHM), London, UK. He specializes in the study of taxonomy, anatomy, and phylogeny of Mesozoic turtles. His current work is mainly focussed on Late Jurassic turtles from Europe.

George E Bentley

Associate Professor of Integrative Biology and Neuroscience.
Director, UC Berkeley Field Station for the Study of Behavior, Ecology and Reproduction. Editorial Board of Domestic Animal Endocrinology, Frontiers in Systems and Integrative Pharmacology, Frontiers in Endocrinology

Sarah F. Brosnan

I study the evolution of decision-making and economic behavior across the primate Order. I am particularly interested in how non-human primates make decisions, especially about cooperation, and how they are altered based on social and ecological contexts.

I am currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology, Philosophy & Neuroscience at Georgia State University and direct the Laboratory for Comparative Economic & Behavioral Studies. I am on the editorial board of several open access journals.

Luis M Chiappe

Vice President for Research and Collections, and Director of the Dinosaur Institute, at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. Adjunct Professor of the University of Southern California. Research Fellow of the Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences. J. S. Guggenheim Fellow and recipient of the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award of the Humboldt Foundation.

Alain Dubois

Professor of zoology at the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle, Paris. Specialist of the systematics of amphibians, of zoological taxonomy and nomenclature, and of biological terminology. Former Director of the herpetology laboratory of the MNHN. Former Chief Editor of “Amphibia-Reptilia” and “Alytes”. Chief Editor of “Bionomina”, Nomenclature Editor of “Zootaxa”. Large teaching experience in taxonomy and nomenclature, currently within the frame of the Distributed European School of Taxonomy.

Scott V. Edwards

Alexander Agassiz Professor of Zoology and Curator of Ornithology in the Museum of Comparative Zoology and Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University. President, Society for the Study of Evolution (2011-12); President, Society of Systematic Biologists (2007); President, American Genetic Association (2011). Elected Fellow, American Association for the Advancement of Science (2009); American Academy of Arts & Sciences (2009).

Andrew A. Farke

Dr. Farke received a B.Sc. in Geology from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in 2003, and completed his Ph.D. in Anatomical Sciences at Stony Brook University in 2008. He joined the staff at the Alf Museum in June 2008, as Augustyn Family Curator of Paleontology.

Alex T Ford

Reader in Biology based at the University of Portsmouth (UK) since 2008. Expertise in Marine Biology, Invertebrate Physiology, Parasitology and Ecotoxicology.

Philippe Grandcolas

Dezene P. W. Huber

Current work in our lab includes mountain pine beetle functional genomics, tree defenses against herbivores and pathogens, insect chemical ecology, bark beetle cold tolerance physiology, stored pest feeding deterrents, weevil foraging behavior, and aquatic insect biodiversity and food web research.

We conduct our research across multiple scales and we use available tools – established and cutting-edge – to search for answers to complex entomological and ecological questions.
