Emeritus Professor


  • Ph.D., University of Oregon

Charles W. Holliday, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor of Biology; at Lafayette
1982-2012. I taught General Biology, Invertebrate Zoology, Human Physiology, Marine Biology, and Comparative Animal Physiology.

Although I’m now retired and no longer teaching Human Physiology and the several other courses I so enjoyed from 1982-2012, I continue to pursue my research on the biology, systematics and physiology of cicada-killer wasps.

I’ve also opened a new research area: Surface and subsurface feeding
techniques in salmonid fishes. The results of a successful experiment in Montana’s Gallatin River are shown in the photograph below.
