ATTACHMENTS


Assessment of principal research involvements and output since 2004


International


Scarabaeinae Research Network

As a member of the Scarabaeinae Research Network (ScarabNet) that is administered from the American Museum of Natural History by Dr Sacha Spector, I have been funded to attend the annual workshop meetings held since 2004 in the USA, Central and South America (see Section 7.2.2.). These meetings have brought together many of the most prominent members of the Scarabaeinae global research community and have resulted in one joint publication (see Section 6.1.38.) with others in preparation. At the three previous meetings in Bolivia and Arizona, a major joint funding application was discussed, subsequently formally written-up, and is currently under revision. If granted in the future, this would result in a major global co-operative research project (PBI – Planetary Biodiversity Inventory) that would include participation by myself and Prof. Clarke Scholtz who leads the University of Pretoria, Scarab Research Unit.


My further activities and involvements generated by the Scarabaeinae Research Network meetings include comments and clarifications offered to improve the taxon database on the ScarabNet website <http://216.73.243.70/scarabnet/default.htm>, an ongoing assessment of the conservation status of 220 out of 1500 randomly selected dung beetle species for the IUCN, participation in joint field work in Bolivia to compare the efficacy of different trapping methods used by different ScarabNet members under standard field conditions, attendance at conferences of the Latin American Scarabaeology Society (VI and VII Réunion Latinoamericana de Scarabaeodologia) held back to back with ScarabNet workshops in Costa Rica and Bolivia.


Ghana

I have twice been invited to become involved in field research in Ghana by Prof. T.K. Philips of West Kentucky University, most recently in 2007. This ongoing research is examining the effects on various insect groups of rainforest fragmentation and degradation of surviving forest patches. A previous visit in 2003 resulted in a 2005 publication (see Section 6.1.36.) that compared the extreme differences between plantation and evergreen rainforest dung beetle faunas. The 2007 visit has resulted in a manuscript that examines the effects on local dung beetle faunas of the disturbance matrix that now extends continuously across the entire West African forest ecoregion to the coastline. This manuscript is currently “in press” with Biotropica (Davis, Philips).


U.K.

During frequent visits to the U.K., I have often visited the Natural History Museum in London. During 2006, one of the curatorial staff of the Dept of Coleoptera, Mr Malcolm Kerley, was kind enough to act as custodian for the loan of type material that I requested from other European museums. This material was used to revise the taxonomy of a dung beetle species and its close relative that were the subject of an ecological study (see below - Other research projects). This revision has since been published (see Section 6.1.40.) with acknowledgement to ScarabNet colleagues at the Denver Museum (Dr Frank Krell) and Hope Museum in Oxford (Dr Darren Mann) who supplied PDFs of difficult to obtain old references.


National


Northern Cape

I have been involved a long-term research project in the Northern Cape since before 2004. This has demanded several weeks of field work each year and many months spent identifying the trapped dung beetle material. Although the ongoing survey work is ostensibly aimed at demonstrating healthy pastures for the Certified Natural® farming organization that is administered by the LAW group (Pty) Ltd, the results for the first five years have just been published as a eco-biogeographical study of the transition zone between the Nama Karoo and Kalahari ecosystems (see Section 6.1.41.).


Semi-popular book on African dung beetle genera

During 2007 and early 2008, I made a major contribution to a semi-popular book that outlines the evolution, biogeography, ecology, and biology of the dung beetle subfamily Scarabaeinae, and introduces each of the many Afrotropical genera considered valid at the time of writing. The book is scheduled for publication by Protea Publishers in November 2008 (Davis, Frolov, Scholtz).


Identification service for other researchers

I developed an extensive taxonomic knowledge of the southern African dung beetle fauna as a Senior Agricultural Researcher in charge of the curation of the reference collection of the Dung Beetle Research Unit (1974-1986). Therefore, during the past four years, I have provided identifications of dung beetles for various visiting, post doctoral, and student researchers at the Scarab Research Unit, including Dr Ute Kryger, Dr Federico Escobar, Mr Cornel du Toit and Mr Power Tshikae.


Other research projects

In addition to the research projects outlined above, further projects have been designed during the preceding four years. In one in particular, I have examined colour polymorphism across a geographical gradient in an iridescent dung beetle species. Measurements of colour wavelengths emitted by the beetles were made at the Dept of Physics (University of Pretoria) by the research section run by Prof Johan Brink, who has published widely in the field of iridescent colour generation by animals. A jointly authored manuscript on this study has just been published in Ecological Entomology (Davis, Brink, Scholtz, Prinsloo, Deschodt).


Papers and manuscripts

Since 2004, I have been an author of eleven published or “in press” papers, eight as senior author and three as a junior author (see Section 6.1.33-41.) I have also spent an entire year (2007) participating in the production of the semi-popular book and have, currently, almost finished a chapter to be included in a forthcoming book on dung beetles aimed at the scientific community.


Concluding assessment

Over the past four years, I have been extensively involved in both national and international research projects in co-operation with both local and international researchers. I have developed extensive international contacts through my membership of the Scarabaeinae Research Network. I have assisted in many research projects by providing a dung beetle identification service. I have, simultaneously, maintained a steady output of papers both as a senior and junior author. In addition, I have made a major contribution to a one forthcoming book and am contributing a chapter to a second book.
