City, state, country:
Spokane, Washington, USA
I devoted 7 years to the task of building a digital archive of non-game wildlife for eastern North Dakota and western Minnesota, 2011-17. In the Pacific Northwest I will continue the task of building a digital archive for eastern Washington. My principal focus has been on documenting local entomology, principally moths.
Academically, I hold three degrees in biology, have published in the areas of ornithology, herpetology and entomology (1978-95). In a 'past life,' I was both Assistant and then Associate Professor of Biology at CSU, Bakersfield (1986-92), and then Associate Professor of Humanities and Biology in the Integrated Studies program at the University of North Dakota, Grand Forks (1992-2014). In that program I enjoyed the creative interdisciplinary task of developing and teaching novel courses that integrated an evolutionary understanding of Biology with various classical themes in the Humanities. In 2014, after my retirement from the University of North Dakota, I rekindled my youthful passion and curiosity for all-things-zoological, and now spend my time afield in the Spokane area of Washington State.
