Research Interests

Tropical leaf beetles genome comparisons in the subfamilies Chrysomelinae and Cassidinae including species:

  • with and without maternal care,
  • with and without aggregated larval feeding and coordinated movement,
  • with differing egg-laying habits (oviparity vs ovoviviparity),
  • with and without elytral color and pattern polymorphism,
  • feed on monocots, others on dicot host plants,
  • with and without extreme dietary (host plant) specialization,
  • with and without Wolbachia and Spiroplasma reproductive bacterial symbiont infection,
  • with differing species of vertically-transmitted gut bacteria symbionts.
