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.
Chloe Weingarten, 13, a budding entomologist from Rochester, Minnesota, presented her poster titled "Bee-searching for a solution: using an antifeedant to conserve bees" at the annual meeting of the Entomological Society of America's North Central Branch in March.
At Entomology 2017, a group of entomologists facilitated a conversation among ESA members and conference participants about the issues of bullying and harassment in our workplaces and at ESA conferences.
This new documentary explains what makes entomologists tick.
