Research Profile

Over the 40 plus years of my research career, I had the opportunity to work with some very bright colleagues and students at three universities and I published with people from around the world. Each of these collaborators aided my research development and allowed me to expand into new avenues of study. My research dealt with the epizootiology and taxonomy of helminths, protozoa, viruses and arthropods. Hosts included most species of domestic animals and free-ranging and captive wild species of mammals, birds and reptiles. A few studies examined the interactions of humans with actual and imagined parasites. Over 220 reviewed and 50 non-reviewed papers were published and over $2,500,000 funded these research activities.

— Parasites of wildlife

— Blood parasites of birds

— Parasites of marine turtles

— Parasite taxonomy

— Biology and vector capabilities of Culicoides (Biting midges)
