Systematic Entomology at Iowa State University

Systematics is one of the traditional research areas in the Department of Entomology. Gregory W. Courtney leads the project.

The focus of Dr. Courtney's research is the systematics and ecology of aquatic insects. Specific areas of study include the phylogeny of Diptera families; the morphology, phylogeny, biogeography, and historical ecology of aquatic insects; the biodiversity and conservation of aquatic habitats; and the use of aquatic insects as indicators of water quality.
