Last name: 
Kondratieff

I am a Professor of Entomology and Director of the 3 million specimen C. P. Gillette Museum of Arthropod Diversity at Colorado State University. My current interests include insect biodiversity surveys of wild lands and other landscapes, aquatic insect ecology, taxonomic revisions and descriptions of new or poorly known species, especially Ephemeroptera (mayflies), Plecoptera (stoneflies), and Diptera (flies), forensic entomology, and management and curatorial work in the C. P. Gillette Museum of Arthropod Diversity. I have published 224 peer reviewed scientific papers and coauthor of four books. I currently teaches six or seven different courses at Colorado State University per academic year in the Department of Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management. I am the
Subject Editor: Zootaxa, Plecoptera and Megaloptera; Editor: Perla. Newsletter and Bibliography of the International Association of Plecopterologists, and Coordinator, Plecoptera Bibliography for Society of Freshwater Science. I have been involved in more than 5 million dollars of funded grants.
