About the Authors
Andrew R. Deans
Deans collected and cataloged all the original references (see PDF available below). He maintains an interest in ensign wasp phylogenetics.
Matthew J. Yoder
Yoder manages the technical aspects of this database and conducts research on diapriid wasps (Proctotrupoidea: Diapriidae)
Dole currently works on the design of relational databases as well as database applications for phylogenetics.
This catalog would not be possible without help from the following individuals and institutions (roughly in chronological order):
- Dr. James B. Whitfield (UIUC)
- Mike Huben (Arlington, MA, U.S.A.)
- Drs. Claire Villemant and Jacques Dubois (MNHN)
- Dave Smith (USDA-SEL, Washington, D.C., U.S.A.)
- Staff at the UIUC Library
- Dr. Frank Koch (ZMHU)
- Dr. Jacek Szwedo, Malgorzata Adamczewska, and Dr. Wioletta Tomaszewska (ZMPA)
- Dr. Jeno Papp, Dr. Lajos Zombori, Csõsz Sándor, and the staff at HMNH
- Dr. Stefan Schödl and Michael Madl (NMW)
- Dr. Elaine De Coninck and Jos De Becker (MRAC)
- Dr. Lars Vilhelmsen (ZMKU)
- Dr. Norm Johnson (Ohio State University)
- The ParaHym email listserv community
- Dr. Kevin Holston (NHRS)
- Claus Rasmussen (UIUC)
- Michael Elliott (Australia Museum, Sydney, NSW)
- Dr. Bob Wharton (Texas A&M University)
- numerous others who provided references and allowed ARD to examine type specimens
This work was funded in part by a University of Illinois Research Board Grant (to Jim Whitfield and ARD), a Society of Systematic Biologists Graduate Research Award (ARD), and a NSF Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant (to ARD, DEB-041544081).
