My interest yields all possible fields of firefly biology ranging from behaviour, ecology, taxonomy, phylogenetics, morphology, physiology, biogeography, phenology, conservation, monitoring & surveying.
I also closely follow the literature about other bioluminescent invertebrates and bioluminescence in general.
Equipment used for field studies:
portable digital video-microscope 1.3 megapixel, 10x~70x, 200x (Dinolite Pro2 AM-4113T)
portable (field) spectrophotometer (USB-650 Red Tide Spectrometer)
digital night-viewer with record function 4x40 (Maginon)
several types of light traps for the surveying of glow-worm firefly species (LED, betalight, bottle-funneltraps)
digital camera (sony cybershot DSC-TX30)
live light traps for glowing species
