    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Research: Taxon-oriented research, specializing in the non-Insect terrestrial arthropods. Systematic, biogeographic, and evolutionary research focuses on the various spider families. Work on the class Diplopoda (millipedes) centers on higher classification
