Samuel N. Beshers The Department of Entomology, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
320 Morrill Hall, 505 S. Goodwin Avenue Urbana, IL 61801
Phone 217-333-4971; FAX 217-244-3499
E-mail: beshers (at) uiuc.edu Interested in the organization and design of biological systems; research focuses on the behavior of social insect colonies and in particular the division of labor in ants. The research involves questions of mechanism, process, and evolution: to understand how the behavior of a colony results from the combined actions and decisions of its workers, and to understand the organizational design of a colony, and to understand how this design contributes to its efficiency.
