Welcome to the Entomology lab of Buenos Aires University

Focus and activities

We study the morphology, taxonomy, and systematics of insects, with an emphasis on aquatic and semiaquatic Coleoptera and Heteroptera where we study a variety of groups. Several of our projects involve national and international collaborations with recognized specialists in our disciplines. We usually do field work collecting aquatic insects in protected areas, mostly of Argentina. The results of our scientific activities are published in national and international journals and books. We also teach several courses in the Biological Sciences career at Buenos Aires University, including specific courses on «Diversity and bionomics of aquatic insects” and «Digital scientific illustration». We develop and maintain a reference collection for research and teaching purposes. We offer graduate/undergraduate student training (scholarships, degree and doctoral theses) in topics related to aquatic Coleoptera and Heteroptera.
