A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I studied the Biodiversity and Systematics master's programme (NABiS) in Sweden. My degree project was a taxonomic revision of the Swedish Doryctines (Hymenoptera, Braconidae). Following the approach of integrative taxonomy my work is largely based on morphological and molecular research.
Two years after the first European record in Italy, we report the first occurrence of the parasitoid wasp Leptopilina japonica Novković & Kimura, 2011 (Hymenoptera: Figitidae) in Germany. The species is a larval‐pupal parasitoid of Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura, 1931) (Diptera: Drosophilidae), which is a widespread invasive and economically importa...
Preliminary findings of evaluating images of Wing Interference Patterns (WIPs) for their use of species delimitation in Anacharis (Hymenoptera: Figitidae) both by eye and machine learning.
Since 2011, the ‘German Barcode of Life’ initiative (GBOL) has been running success- fully. During the first (2011–2015) and the second phase (2016–2019), a network of professional and non-professional taxonomists was established to set up a DNA barcode reference library for the fauna, flora, and fungi of Germany. About half of the animal specie...
