About Me



Welcome to Stag Beetle Help line. I am a part time postgraduate student at the Royal Holloway studying for my PhD on the biology and ecology of the stag beetle. The Royal Holloway and the Peoples Trust For Endangered Species are sponsoring my research.

The PTES survey showed that the number of stag beetles appears to be falling and it is the aim of my research to see if this really is the case. As well as this I want to fill the gaps in our knowledge of the stag beetle.

I am in the fith year and I hope to complete my PhD in 2006/7. The stag beetle is an ideal choice for a part time PhD student because of its long life cycle.


I would like to thank Dan Ambrose (danambrose.co.uk) for kindly designing the site.
