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
Course page uploads: 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:
