Thesis title: A taxonomic revision of the Afrotropical Chalcididae.

Supervisor: Prof Steve Compton & Dr Simon van Noort

Sariana completed her MSc at Stellenbosch University in 2014. For her PhD she is undertaking a comprehensive taxonomic revision of the Chalcididae family (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea). It is a moderately large, widely distributed family, consisting of a large number of parasitoids and a few hyperparasitoids. Part of her project is to develop user-friendly identification keys accessible to taxonomists, conservationists and ecologists, to address the lack of systematic knowledge about this economically important group of wasps.
