- Animal Protection Systematics
- Biodiversity Assessment and Evaluation
- Specialist for nearly 50 years on world fauna of predatory mite family Ascidae, and on world fauna of phytophagous, fungivorous, parasitic and predatory mites of family Tarsonemidae.
- Provides authoritative information for Agriculture Canada's National Identification Service for several thousand species in about 100 families of mites and ticks, including parasites, predators, plant-feeders, fungivores, and stored food and allergy-causing pests.
- Long-establilshed interests in: systematics and phylogenetics of Acari diversi; homology and standardized terminology of acarine external structures; symbiotic relationships between mites, insects, nematodes, and fungi; biodiversity of targeted mite taxa in selected ecosystems.
