Kurt Milton Pickett

Kurt Pickett's research program is focused on taxonomy of the wasp family Vespidae. Combining time-honored data from sources such as adult morphology, larval morphology, and behavioral attributes with more modern molecular data, he conducts revisionary taxonomy, phylogenetic systematics, and investigations into the evolution of social behavior across the family. Pickett's research also extends to the role of taxonomy in biology, and he investigates various methodological and computational issues in phylogenetics.
