About the author (2009)

Dr. Alcock's research deals with the evolution of diversity in insect mating systems. He studies selected species of desert insects in Arizona and Western Australia, in an attempt to document the variety of male mate-locating techniques in various bees, wasps, butterflies, dragonflies, and other
insects. The goal of his research is to test hypotheses on the adaptive value of the different ways in which males find mating partners.
