Glene Mynhardt.


Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Glene has always been fond of nature but didn't get acquainted with entomology until she took her first entomology courses at the University of Texas at Austin. Her interest in scarabs began as she conducted informal dung beetle surveys. Although primarily interested in systematics and taxonomy, she pursued a Master's Degree at Texas A&M University working on pecan weevil population genetics. She recently received her Ph.D. at The Ohio State University, where she worked on the systematics of the ant-loving scarab genus, Cremastocheilus, as well as other aspects of myrmecophily in beetles. She is currently a postdoc at Iowa State University, where she is working on the evolution of complex systems in invertebrates; however, she still continues to collect dung beetles and hopes to continue further work on scarabs.
