I also maintain a website called Beetles In The Bush - featuring essays and photographs of insects (especially beetles) and their hosts, the habitats and natural communities in which they occur, and the landscapes harboring them. I also discuss their taxonomy and relationship with botany, geology, and natural history.

A list of my publications is located at my website with links to PDFs of all papers. I can also send hard reprints or photocopies if desired.
