We have confirmed a second speaker for our Fall Meeting! NEES is happy to welcome Linnea Meier, an Insect Chemical Ecologist and Postdoctoral Researcher for USDA-APHIS-PPQ, working out of the Otis Lab.
Her talk will be “Chemical Ecology of the Invasive Spotted Lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula),” a very interesting topic, considering the concern this interest is stirring among the general public, as well as those of us who like all things insect.
And remember that our other speaker will be Avalon Owens, on the subject of the impact of artificial light at night on insect declines and on insectivore predation.
The Fall Meeting is Saturday, November 16th from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Umass Boston.
