Boris Kondratieff

Professor of Entomology and Curator of the C. P. Gillette Museum of Arthropod Diversity, Colorado State University

My general interest is systematics of insects, including their life history and ecology. I am also interested in developing manuals for the identification of major groups of insects in Colorado. I am the curator of the C. P. Gillette Museum of Arthropod Diversity, a three million-specimen collection. Current research interests include: (1) biodiversity surveys for wild lands and other landscape, (2) revisions and descriptions of new or poorly known species, especially Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera, and Diptera, (3) systematic surveys of poorly known insects of Colorado, especially present or potential pest species, and (4) management and curatorial aspects of the Colorado State University’s C. P. Gillette Museum of Arthropod Diversity.
