Specialisms

Bee taxonomy, biogeography, evolutionary ecology, pollination ecology, systematics

Summary

As an entomologist I am particularly interested in bee taxonomy, systematics and biogeography with a special focus on the genus Colletes and the bee fauna of southern Africa. Both, Colletes bees and the biodiversity hotspot of the Greater Cape Floristic Region in western South Africa, are ideal models for studying evolutionary processes like flower specialization and the role of plant-pollinator interactions as drivers of diversification.
