Title of the doctoral thesis: Thrips communities of forests in Germany (Insecta, Thysanoptera).
For many years I have been studying the tiny insects of the order Thysanoptera. Numerous projects in Europe and in the tropical part of South America, as well as an extensive collection have resulted from my enthusiasm.
Unfortunately, current research structures hardly allow studies in classical fields of biology. For this reason I have been unableto find regular work related to Thysanoptera.
In 2006 I completed my skills with a pedagogical training and now I work as a high school teacher for biology and chemistry.
With dedication I try to call attention to little things, which are essential for the general context. Little things like thrips.
