Asst. Prof. Jacek Szwedo studies the evolution and phylogeny of Hemiptera, in particular Fulgoromorpha, Cicadomorpha and Coleorrhyncha), the evolution, classification, paleobiology, paleodiversity, paleogeography, and evolutionary scenarios of Hemiptera and their relatives Paraneoptera. He also conducts research in comparative morphology of modern and fossil Hemiptera, based on present-day and extinct faunas, the latter preserved as inclusions in fossilized resin and sedimentary rocks.

The Hemiptera order, sometimes known as the “bugs,” includes herbivorous aphids and cicadas, as well as certain predatory species of true bugs that feed on the blood of humans and domestic animals (such as bedbugs). In evolutionary terms, Hemiptera are some of the most successful insects among all present-day fauna
