DUNG BEETLES - SYSTEMATICS - PHYLOGENETIC METHODS - ONTOLOGIES

Welcome to Tarasov Lab! Our research strives to understand the evolutionary processes that shaped the stunning diversity of organismal forms on Earth. We employ an interdisciplinary approach that involves beetle systematics, statistical modeling, development of new phylogenetic methods and ontology-based tools for descriptive taxonomy. Our focal group of organisms is Dung Beetles (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Scarabaeinae).
