Entomology Today will be taking a break over the Thanksgiving holiday, but we wanted to take a moment to thank all of the readers who visit this blog on a regular basis. Whether you’re a practicing entomologist or a non-entomologist with an interest in the fascinating world of insects, we’re glad to have you here.
We’d also like to thank the guest writers who have contributed to the blog in 2016. You’ve added different perspectives to Entomology Today and made it a more interesting resource for our readers.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t also take the opportunity to thank the many photographers whose images have made our site more interesting and informative. In particular, we’d like to thank the people behind the photo resource libraries at InsectImages.com, which is a joint project of The University of Georgia – Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources, College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences – Department of Entomology, the Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health, the Georgia Museum of Natural History, ESA, and the USDA Identification Technology Program, as well as the Insects Unlocked project at the University of Texas at Austin.
