Meet David Adamski. He is a Research Associate at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History as well as an employee of the U.S. Department of Agriculture for 23 years. David specializes in alpha taxonomy, life histories, and morphology of moths, and has a number of published works, including a dissertation on data for over 550 species of moths. He will soon be the author of another work involving over 200 more species of moths for the Wedge Entomological Research Foundation’s Moths of America North of Mexico Series. Two-thirds of the moths in this book are completely new to science and the book will also contain images, maps, and illustrations.
