2013 entomology collections – some highlights posted

Here are – all posted with kind permission – some photos of the student collections submitted as part of this year’s General Entomology course. The collections shown were among the most diverse, and/or well presented final submissions (however the line-up is far from complete). Students had to accumulate 100 insect specimens, curate them properly, and identify each specimen to the level of family.  Congratulations!

Recent SoLS awards to lab members

Some good news came to our lab recently in the form of SoLS-sponsored research awards and fellowships.

  • Undergraduate student  Usmaan Basharat received a SOLUR Apprentice grant for the project “Molecular phylogenetics and biogeography of Cuban weevils (Curculionidae)”.
  • Graduate student Sal Anzaldo was awarded a STRI Graduate Fellowship to spend the 2014 Spring Semester in Panama, take a course in tropical field biology, and conduct research on conoderine weevils.
  • Postdoctoral researcher Guanyang Zhang received the SoLS-RTI Postdoctoral Research Award, jointly with Patrick Browne of the Cadillo Lab, for the project “Elucidating weevil-endosymbiont associations and diversity across different ecological and evolutionary scales”‘.

Congratulations to all!
