In many agricultural settings, insect pest traps can also attract bees. In a new report, a group of researchers examine ways to reduce bee bycatch in pest traps while also exploring how bee bycatch can aid in assessing bee biodiversity, population levels, range shifts, and more.
A team of researchers reviewed the status of mitochondrial DNA as a molecular marker in insect ecology studies, given recent evidence that mitochondrial DNA may be more complicated than once thought.
A partnership between the National Ecological Observatory Network and the National Phenology Network makes deep troves of ecological and phenological data available for a variety of uses, including predicting populations and dynamics of insects such as mosquitoes.
The Biorepository created by the National Ecological Observatory Network program is a treasure trove for entomologists and others interested in insects, arthropods, and vector-borne diseases. Learn more about what's available and how it could enhance your research.
