Biography:

I'm a retired biologist, a bit of a generalist, but my background is strongest in insects in other arthropods (pubs in Google Scholar). I enjoy marveling at the richness of life on our planet, and feel we have a better chance of effectively conserving and managing natural resources when we understand what is here - among other things, that would be the animals, plants, rocks, and water. At the moment (August 2020), I'm particularly interested in the fauna & flora of Beaufort County, North Carolina, especially moths.
