Daniel Kjar, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Biology, Division of Mathematics & Natural Science at Elmira College
From Elmira
I am an ant ecologist and I focus my research on the ant community of a small island in The Bahamas. I am interested in the effects of introduced ant species on the native ant fauna and how the ant community responds to disturbance. I teach various courses on biostatistics, ecology, and evolution. I also teach a course in developmental biology and our First Year Seminar. Please visit for more information about my research and teaching.
