Saint Petersburg, Russia

     I was born and educated in Saint Petersburg, Russia. I have two M.Sc. degrees: from Saint Petersburg State Forest Technical Academy (in Forestry/Forest Entomology) and from Central European University, Budapest, Hungary (in Environmental Sciences and Policy). I earned my Ph.D. degree at Saint Petersburg State University (in Entomology, 1997, Seasonal Cycles of Heteroptera: Diversity and Environmental Control). For the following ten years, I did three postdoctoral projects: first in the laboratory of Prof. H. Numata, Osaka City University, Osaka, Japan, 1998-2000 (eco-physiology of diapause and overwintering and range expansion of Nezara viridula), the second in the laboratory of Dr. K. Ito, National Agricultural Research Center for Hokkaido Region, Sapporo, Japan, 2001-2005 (eco-physiology of diapause of predatory anthocorid bugs), and the third in the laboratory of Prof. K. Fujisaki, Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan (range expansion and response of Nezara viridula to simulated global warming), 2005-2009.  In 2009, I came back to Russia and currently work at Saint Petersburg State University, Saint Petersburg, on analysis of diversity of seasonal adaptations and life cycles of true bugs.

 

     I am interested in the seasonal ecology of Heteroptera. The primary focus of my experimental research is photoperiodic control of diapause and other seasonal adaptations. My interest covers different seasonal phenomena in Heteroptera: environmental control of seasonal development, diapause (its induction, maintenance, termination), ecology of overwintering, polymorphism/polyphenism, migrations, voltinism, seasonal cycles, life histories, etc.  My research in Osaka and Kyoto showed that Nezara viridula responds to climate warming by expanding its distribution range (Musolin & Numata, 2003a, b, 2004, 2007; Musolin et al., 2010; Touguou et al. 2010; Takeda et al., 2010) and this finding promoted my interest in response of Heteroptera to climate change.

    I am interested in collaboration with colleagues working in the same area.  Please let me know by email if you have interest and I will be happy to send you my CV and full Publication list [including non-Pentatomoidea papers and a book entitled Seasonal Development of Aquatic and Semiaquatic True Buts (Heteroptera)].
