Samuel Brown

My primary research interests are in the systematics, evolution and taxonomy of beetles, with a particular focus on the weevils (Curculionoidea). I have a geographic focus on the fauna of New Zealand, the South Pacific and Australia, but have a broad general understanding of weevil diversity globally.
