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.
