Melissa Sanchez Herrera and I are organizing a
Systematics, Evolution, and Biodiversity
section symposium for the 2019 Entomological
Society of America meeting in St. Louis, Missouri
The symposium is entitled:
Tuesday, November 19, 2019
1:30 pm - 5:30 pm
America's Center - Room 230
The reflection and emission of light from insect surfaces has both fascinated and inspired entomologists and the general public for centuries. The goal for our symposium is to provide a setting in which to discuss color research and its use in public outreach initiatives that aim to inspire insect curiosity and advocate for entomology. We have talks that will be given by entomologists from different continents / countries working on diverse, ingenuitive projects that incorporate insect coloration components including production, structures, perception and selection.
In addition to talks we intend to have an electronic exhibit of images and illustrations that fulfill thesecriteria and we are thus seeking submissions for this endeavor.
DEADLINE: November 1, 2019
