Dr Laurence Mound
Laurence has been called a peripatetic entomologist. After postgraduate study in London, he went to Trinidad for one year, Nigeria for two years and Sudan for three years, before joining the staff of London's Natural History Museum. In 1967, he visited Australia for a year, and over the next 30 years he studied insects in many different countries. When Laurence retired, he moved to Australia as an Honorary Fellow at CSIRO. His speciality is the order Thysanoptera, the thrips - their biology and identification. Although small, their biology is interesting and varied, whether as plant virus vectors, pollinators, gall-inducers, predators or fungus-feeding colonial insects.

Dr Laurence Mound: thrips expert
Dr Laurence Mound's research on thrips biology allows rapid identification of pest species, and assists thrips biologists around the world.
Dr Mound has carried out field studies widely across the Australian arid zone, but currently is placing greater emphasis on the eastern and northern coasts and the inter-relationships of the fauna of these areas with the fauna of Indonesia.
From these studies it appears that little more than 50 per cent of the Australian thrips fauna has been described, and the objective is to produce a major introductory text that will facilitate future studies by other workers.
Dr Mound has recently made available through the CSIRO website a complete checklist to the 7 500 published names for thrips species from around the world.This is part of an on-going information and advisory service that he provides to scientists working worldwide on many aspects of thrips biology.
Dr Laurence Mound has more than 40 years experience studying thrips in many parts of the world.His research in recent years has focused on:
Dr Mound's first degree was a BSc (Hons) in Zoology in 1957 from the University of London.His research output was recognised by that university in 1975 with the award of a DSc.
He was appointed an Honorary Professor at the University of Wales, Cardiff, in 1990, and more recently has supervised students at:
Dr Laurence Mound has more than 40 years experience studying thrips in many parts of the world.
Dr Mound has published, with Prof. Gerald Moritz of Halle, Germany, several CD-ROMS providing identification and information systems about thrips.
Dr Mound also collaborated with Dr Irene Terry of the University of Utah, USA, in establishing that thrips are the specific pollinators of some Australian cycad species in the genus Macrozamia.
As a result of Dr Mound's work, the number of described Thysanoptera species recorded in the Australian Faunal Directory has risen from 287 in 1970 to 685 in 2005.

Dr Laurence Mound: thrips expert
Using electronic information systems Dr Laurence Mound is providing rapid identification techniques that can help prevent the establishment of potential pest insects in Australia. 
Current AQIS Activities - Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, 14 July 2011 [cached]
The entomologists engaged the help of leading CSIRO thrips taxonomist and ex-curator of the British Natural History Museum, Dr Laurence Mound, who quickly identified them as 'something new'. After extensive liaison with other world thrips experts, Dr Mound published a scientific paper detailing the new thrips and described the origin of the new thrips' name Kenyattathrips katarinae.
