Dr. Mary Liz Jameson is Research Associate Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences. She joined Wichita State in 2008.

Mary Liz Jameson is an evolutionary biologist. She is interested in patterns and processes of evolution, phylogenetic relationships, patterns of diversity, speciation, and sexual selection. Her area of specialization is the systematics, phylogeny, biodiversity, and biogeography of the Coleoptera, specifically the "megadiverse" superfamily Scarabaeoidea that includes over 35,000 described species. Her phylogenetics research integrates molecular methods, conservation, pollination ecology, and morphological methods. She also conducts faunistic research on scarab beetles (nationally and internationally), ecological research on dung beetles and carrion beetles, and conservation research on the endangered American Burying Beetle (Nicrophorus americanus).
