About

I am a freelance naturalist, endlessly fascinated by the interconnections of all the living and nonliving things around me.  I am the lead author of Tracks & Sign of Insects and Other Invertebrates (Stackpole Books, 2010), and continue to collect photographs and information on this subject.  These days I am especially drawn to galls, leaf mines, and other plant-insect interactions.  For more about my work, visit CharleyEiseman.com and NorthernNaturalists.com (my joint site with Noah Charney).  I live in western Massachusetts.

If you like what you see here and would like to discourage me from breaking down and getting a real job, please consider making a donation.  Just click the “Make A Donation” button above the image of my book (which, incidentally, is also a link to a page where you can purchase my book) in the right sidebar.

I’m always interested in trying to solve natural history mysteries, bug-related or otherwise.  If you’ve got one you’re puzzling over, feel free to send it to me at ceiseman@gmail.com.

    I’ve got your excellent book and hope to contribute occasionally to its website. Found this site after just discovering 5 different sites of stink bug eggs on window screens of my house. Looking forward to watching them hatch! Also wishing for a few of those parasitic wasps…

    I found what I think might be a cocoon of sorts similar to a post on your site about the Wookie moth. Is there a way I can email you a picture of it for identification?

  3. Just discovered your blog today – very nice! Your book looks great, too.
