Charles Bartlett, University of Delaware


Combined teaching and research appointment in the UD Department of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology. Curator of the University of Delaware Insect research collection.

Academic Background:

Ph.D. North Carolina State University (Insect Systematics)
M.S. University of Delaware (Entomology and Applied Ecology)
B.S. University of Delaware (Wildlife Management with Forestry minor)

Research Interests:

I specialize in the systematics of the planthoppers (Hemiptera), particularly the delphacid planthoppers of North America. I am particularly interested in the revisionary systematics of Delphacidae north of Mexico, currently centered on the polyphyletic genus Delphacodes. I am also interested in developing adequate tools for the identification of planthopper species, both traditional publications and online tools. I have a longer term interest in the phylogentetics of planthoppers at the tribal, subfamily and family levels using combined morphological and molecular tools. I am currently developing a genus- level identification guide to planthoppers north of Mexico.
