Noted entomologist to receive science excellence award
Date:5/3/2010

ooks on the taxonomy, evolution, systematics, biology, and behavior of Orthoptera (grasshoppers, crickets, katydids, and locusts). His latest book, Caribbean Crickets (The Orthopterists' Society, 2009), is the first comprehensive assessment of crickets in the Caribbean islands and includes descriptions of 585 species, of which 458 are new to science.

He taught biology at the Universities of Pennsylvania, Delaware, Montana and Texas and also biologic illustration at the Moore College of Art in Philadelphia. In 1975 he joined the Academy as curator. He also is the founder and principle author of Mantodea Species File, an online catalog and database on preying mantises, with taxonomic information on more than 2,400 species. He also is founder and principle author of Phasmida Species File, an online catalog and database on stick and leaf insects, with taxonomic information on more than 2,940.

For most Academy scientists, the best part of their job is the field work, and Otte already has his next big adventure planned. He's off to the Rockies and South Africa, two of his favorite collecting spots, in preparation for the third volume of his The North American Grasshoppers.
