Little Bugs, Big Tundra: Arctic Insects in a Warming World
Thursday, 21 November, 2013 | Starts at 07:00 PM
Our fall 2013 distinguished speaker, Terry Wheeler, joins us from McGill University, in Montreal where he is an Associate Professor in entomology.
Terry is the president of the Natural History Network, and the director of the Lyman Entomological Museum, a collection of three million unique volumes of biodiversity data, each impaled on a pin or floating in a vial. The museumís research in insect taxonomy helps unravel patterns of ecological structure in arthropod communities in habitats from temperate forests to high arctic tundra, and from human-altered, restored and pristine sites.
Check out Terry's blog, Three Lines About Six Legs, which features, as you may have percieved, hiakus about insects.
This talk is free and the community is warmly invited to attend. For a friendly reminder, you may 'join' this event at our facebook page: www.facebook.com/naturalhistoryinstitute.
