Entomology 2018 keynoter Randy Olson helps entomologists get past a fundamental challenge: "The more information we’re gathering, the worse we’re getting at communicating."
Part of the Grand Challenge Agenda for Entomology, the summit “Addressing the North American and Pacific Rim Invasive Insect and Arthropod Species Challenge,” drew more than 150 experts in invasive species from academia, industry, government, and entomological societies, hailing from Canada, the United States, and beyond.
If you've seen the highlights from recent entomology science policy field tours, a symposium at Entomology 2018 will gather perspectives on the success and challenges of the model for getting a diverse crowd of scientists and stakeholders up close and personal with entomology issues in real-world settings.
As integrated pest management continues to grow and evolve, one practitioner urges us not to forget the people side of IPM. However well-crafted an IPM plan may be, it can only be effective when the various individuals asked to carry it out are fully committed.
Launching a new entomology journal is a learning experience, say the co-editors-in-chief of Insect Systematics and Diversity. On its first anniversary, the duo share their experience in working with volunteers and authors and their vision for the journal as it continues to grow.
Subterranean termite colonies can be as large as 1 million individuals with a foraging territory and underground galleries stretching up to 100 meters long. How does an entomologist study something that large? Here's a behind-the-scenes look at how researchers at the University of Florida have raised entire termite colonies from scratch and devised experimental setups that mimic large foraging and nesting areas while still fitting inside a lab.
Meet Scott O'Neal, Ph.D., postdoctoral researcher and instructor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, specialist in insect physiology and immune function, and subject of the next installment of our "Standout Early Career Professionals" series.
Since 1983, the Linnaean Games have tested the entomological smarts of student teams at Entomological Society of America meetings. Find out how teams headed to the 2018 national competition are preparing.
Organized by the ESA Student Affairs Committee, this symposium at Entomology 2018 will gather a variety of perspectives on the latest research and strategies for managing insecticide resistance in mosquitoes, bed bugs, moths, and more.
Extension entomologist David R. Coyle, Ph.D. shares another round of advice for success in the extension career, a role that requires efficiency, flexibility, and customer service.
In Missouri, a series of "train-the-trainer" workshops have provided extension educators with the latest knowledge in integrated pest management to share with growers throughout the state.
Meet Tolulope Morawo, Ph.D., postdoctoral fellow at Auburn University, insect chemical ecologist, and the subject of the next installment of our "Standout Early Career Professionals" Series.
What started with one entomologist's Twitter hashtag turned into a segment on the Netflix show Bill Nye Saves the World, and two entomology graduate students appeared on the show to share their work with the world.
Fighting Nature With Nature: Scientists Mobilize Biological Control Against Devastating Fall Armyworm
Researchers at Virginia Tech's Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Integrated Pest Management are looking to biological control for the fall armyworm, with plans to deploy native, mass-reared parasitoid wasps in Kenya, Tanzania, and Ethiopia in the coming year.
Just one-quarter of university and federal entomology jobs held by women, according to a new analysis published in the Annals of the Entomological Society of America.
Meet entomologist Nancy Miorelli, co-founder of the Ask an Entomologist blog, tour guide in the Ecuadorian cloud forest, and insect-inspired jewelry maker, in the next installment of our "Standout Early Career Professionals" series.
