Alexander Egan, Graduate Student, Department of Entomology, University of Minnesota.

My interests in entomology include population ecology, geographic range, and use of indicator species for resource protection or remediation efforts. I am currently working to identify invertebrate communities utilizing coastal rock pools at several national parks of Lake Superior, recognize rare or alpine-arctic disjunct invertebrate taxa, and assist the parks in long term management strategies for protecting coastal habitats. Because international shipping lanes pass near or through the parks, an important use of these data will be for geographic triage during spill response, and shoreline habitat restoration in the event of oil or fuel spills.
