I studied zoology and biocybernetics at the Universities of Frankfurt and Tuebingen. After graduation in zoology I worked at the Max-Planck-Institute for behavioural physiology, Tuebingen, on rainforest grasshopper biology in South America. From 1991 to 1997 I worked as research assistant at the University of Freiburg, subsequently at the Center for Development Research, University of Bonn, in cooperation with the Zoological Museum Koenig, where I developed the Global Register of Migratory Species (www.groms.de) and the DORSA (www.dorsa.de) Orthoptera project. As a retired scientist I continue to work on insect bioacoustics, mainly working with Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM). research topics are biodiversity informatics and geographical information systems, and their application for conservation.

Diversity and Bioacoustics of tropical insects
Around 10,000 Orthoptera songs compiled by the DORSA project are now available online through SYSTAX database:
