Meet Hollis Woodard, Ph.D., assistant professor of entomology at the University of California, Riverside, expert in bumble bee sociality, passionate ambassador for public science outreach, and the subject of the next installment of our "Standout Early Career Professionals" series.
A visit with family and some young cousins reminds one entomologist about why he first became interested in insects and why it's so important for scientists be ambassadors for the knowledge they have about the natural world.
A roundup of stories and analysis on the impacts on entomology and science at large caused by the now-lifted U.S. federal government shutdown.
The inclusion of entomology in art, and vice versa, can reach new audiences and provide new insights for both fields.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Graduate students in the Department of Entomology and Nematology at the University of California, Davis, performed original tunes incorporating entomology themes at the 2018 UC Davis Picnic Day.
To celebrate Father's Day, check out some fascinating insights on insect fathers providing exceptional paternal care revealed via recent entomological research.
Entomology students face plenty of pressure, from conducting research to getting published to presenting at conferences. And, perhaps most daunting: embarking upon a career after graduation. Ph.D. student Lina Bernaola calls the stress of the final stages of academic coursework "graduphobia."
Kate Mathis, Ph.D., postdoctoral researcher at the University of Arizona and soon-to-be assistant professor at Clark University, got hooked on entomology at a young age, when she saw ants swarm peonies in her mother's garden every spring as they bloomed. Today, she carries that fascination into her research on complex species interactions.
In An Entomologist's Love Story, insect mating rituals stand as metaphors for human dating behavior—and the entomological themes and humor hold up under inspection, says entomology Ph.D. student Emily Bick.
Entomologists at the Great Lakes Forestry Centre in Canada have crafted a standardized naming convention for their laboratory insect stocks, and they suggest other similar facilities could adopt the naming format, as well.
Entomologists Ashley Kennedy and Lina Bernaola participated in the 2018 March for Science in Washington, DC, on April 14. Kennedy and Bernaola say that, though the March was smaller than the 2017 edition, it left them inspired to "continue taking steps forward to enhance advocacy for science."
Every year, students and professionals in entomology present their research at the Entomological Society of America's Annual Meeting. It's a chance to share the latest updates from their work with an audience of fellow experts in insect science, and, with a little preparation, it doesn't have to be a nerve-racking experience.
