The Australian Taxonomy

Community Directory

James Dorey

I am a PhD Candidate at Flinders Uni and the South Australian Museum. I work mostly on wild bees using phylogenetics, taxonomy, GIS and ecology to answer questions on their biology. I am also a professional photographer, which I use to back-up my research and raise the profile of taxonomy and science in Australia.
I also tend to go on long field work trips around Australia collection specimens - mostly bees and wasps, but I am willing to collect for other people so long as the collection and storage of those specimens is not too 'specialist' (I mostly collect into ethanol).
