Insect Systematics, Morphology, Evolution & Biology
Course #: EEB 5895 Section 028
Date/time: Monday 12:20-1:15
Location: TLS 313
Contact: David Wagner, Kevin Keegan

Overview

Our entomology meetings are open to graduate students, undergraduate students, employees, alumni and friends who are interested in entomology.
Our labs (Wagner, Henry, Simon, and Garcia-Robledo) have a variety of foci hovering around Lepidoptera, Hymenoptera, Hemiptera, Neuroptera, Coleoptera, Odonata, and Acari.
The main goals of these meetings are to:

  • Practice presenting papers and facilitating discussion on relevant topics in entomology
  • Brainstorm research ideas and present results
  • Tell biology-related jokes

Meetings typically begin with announcements about entomology related happenings, followed by a discussion of a paper, a practice talk, etc. Participants are encouraged to attend every lab meeting, read every paper, and come prepared with questions.

Entomology related show-and-tell is always welcome in the form of specimens (alive or dead), articles, books, or PowerPoint presentations.

All students taking this meeting for credit (and all others who wish to participate) should sign up to present a paper at least once per semester. If you would like to take this meeting for credit, email David Wagner to request a permission number. The schedule below lists our meeting dates.

Email Kevin Keegan to reserve your date -or-
add yourself if you have EEBedia credentials

Keeping in Touch

All information about our meetings will be broadcast through our listerv: ENTOMEET-L. Here are some listserv tips:

To send an e-mail to the list:

-start a new email
-in the address line type "ENTOMEET-L@LISTSERV.UCONN.EDU"
-fill out the rest of the e-mail per usual and send

You should receive a confirmation e-mail saying that your message was sent, but you will not receive a copy of the e-mail that you sent.

-in the body of the e-mail type "SUB ENTOMEET-L (Your name)" e.g. "SUB ENTOMEET-L Kevin Keegan"
-send the e-mail (whatever address you are sending it from will then be subscribed to ENTOMEET-L)

To unsubscribe to the list:

-start a new email

You should receive an automated reply telling you if your email was successful. It may take 5-10 minutes for you to receive the automated reply. Find more information on Listserv click here, and let Kevin know if you have any questions.

Recent Articles (Ripe for Discussion!)

Email Kevin Keegan if you have any additions for the recent articles list, or add them yourself if you have EEBedia credentials.

Wagner Lab Sensu Stricto

Sometimes the Wagner Lab gets together apart from Entomology Meeting to discuss moth matters of particular interest to us. Here's a record of what we discussed:

Date Paper
February 19 A comprehensive molecular phylogeny of Geometridae (Lepidoptera) with a focus on enigmatic small subfamilies (in prep)
