Jerzy Borowski (born 1966) has studied beetles for more than 20 years, making every year (since 1992) at least one entomological expedition abroad. He graduated from the Faculty of Forestry, Warsaw University of Life Sciences, and now works there as a lecturer. His scientific activity is mainly directed to the taxonomy of beetles of the superfamily Bostrichoidea, with additional interests in faunistics, bionomy and ecology of Central European beetles, valorization of forest environments by zooindication, resistance vs. susceptibility of introduced trees and shrubs to insect infection. He has authored above 90 publications. Privately he is a lover of horror and science-fiction literature, as well as zealous (but, unfortunately, in the last years only "theoretical"...) angler.
