“Multi-trophic interactions above and below ground shaping our interpretation of plant Signaling”
Excited to be invited back to my old stomping grounds!![Top]
“ATTACKS FROM BELOW: UNEARTHING THE IMPACTS OF BELOWGROUND HERBIVORES ON FOLIAGE FEEDER SUCCESS”
Jessica’s presentation on her above-belowground interactions research project got her first place in agriculture and animal science at this years University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum!!!![Top]
I will be giving a talk this summer at APS, looks like it should be a great meeting![Top]
Gene Thompson, a former Acting Division Director for the Michigan Department of Agriculture, died in July 1997. In his memory, Sigurd and Sheila Nelson, close friends who knew Gene from his student days, have established a recruiting fellowship in support of an entomology student in applied entomology with an outstanding academic record.
Good Job Liz![Top]
SIP15 :The 15th international symposium on insect-plant relationships will take place from 17 to 22 August in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. The event will follow the lead of previous insect-plant interactions symposia and study novel aspects of the relationships between plants and insects, from mechanisms to evolutionary ecology. The symposium will have a multidisciplinary perspective, and will put special emphasis on the presentation of emerging new fields and hitherto neglected areas.[Top]
Elizabeth, currently finishing her studies at Cornell, will be starting this Fall as a graduate student studying above-belowground interactions![Top]
E.O. Wilson making me promise to always study Nematodes!!![Top]
