I'm an ecologist who mainly studies insects and plants. I'm especially interested in caterpillars and the shelters that many of them build. I'm currently a professor at Binghamton University in New York. I've also done field work in Missouri and Costa Rica. I recently started adding some of my pre-iNaturalist observations with general locations and will be refining the locations by going back to my field notebooks when I get a chance. Since I like documenting various kinds of interactions (herbivory, pollination, predation/parasitism), I use the "Associated observation" field for linking interaction partners. Feel free to add more specific interaction observation fields if they're of interest to you.

When I'm not doing high-level sorting IDs, I mainly try to identify caterpillars and other plant-associated insects. I've started learning the adult skippers for North America, but it's a process. My species list of IDs:
