CitationDistinguished for research in entomology, especially on Diptera. Has applied with great success his wide knowledge of taxonomy and the structure of early stages for the study of phylogenetic relationship of different families of these insects. Has carried out important zoogeographical investigations in Europe, South America and Africa, and published several extensive monographs on different groups of these insects. Has greatly stimulated the study of Diptera here and abroad and has helped in many ways numerous investigators engaged in the study of insects as vectors of parasitic infections.
