May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. In the past year, numerous Asian American and Pacific Islander entomologists have earned ESA awards, been featured in ESA publications, or served in key volunteer roles. Get to know these members and their accomplishments.
Numerous entomologists of the past are dubbed "fathers" of particular subfields, but where are all the "mothers" in our insect science textbooks? It's time to address this historical bias with a look at several founding women in entomology—and a conversation about how we choose to honor leaders in our field.
Four women currently serve in the Entomological Society of America's president, vice president, vice president-elect, and immediate past president roles—a first in the Society's history. In a Q&A, learn more about these leaders and their perspectives on the entomology profession, their advice for career success, their favorite insects, and much more.
Science societies including the Entomological Society of America are partnering on a new project funded by the National Science Foundation to address the underrepresentation of Native Americans in biological sciences.
