Piotr Naskrecki

Entomologist

Piotr is an entomologist and conservation biologist, currently serving as associate director of E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Laboratory at Gorongosa National Park in Mozambique, as well as a research associate with the Museum of Comparative Zoology at Harvard University. He received his Ph.D. in Entomology from the University of Connecticut in 2000. His publications, both technical and popular, strive to promote appreciation and conservation of invertebrate animals. Piotr’s field research, which deals mostly with behavior and biology of singing insects, has taken him to six continents, often in areas rarely, if ever, visited by other biologists. As a nature photographer, Piotr focuses on smaller and generally misunderstood organisms, such as invertebrates, amphibians, and reptiles. His recent books, The Smaller Majority and Relics, illustrate a multitude of threats faced by invertebrate animals and try to show rare or never before photographed organisms.
