Head of Group

Klaus Reinhardt

I am Full Professor, heading the Applied Zoology lab at TU Dresden. And I like that.

In addition to Sperm Biology (sperm metabolism, sperm ecology) and Mito-Nuclear Interactions, and some very cautious excursions into Ecological Lipidology (a name that we coined), I am broadly interested in insects (e.g., see here the lovely bedbugs in a close-up video). I also represent these topics in teaching. More details on research interests on this site, on publications here, and here. And, I have an interest in Cultural Entomology and the local insect faunistics.
