Melissa Sanchez Herrera and I organized a
Systematics, Evolution, and Biodiversity 

section symposium for the 2019 Entomological
Society of America meeting in St. Louis, Missouri

 
The symposium was entitled: 




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 was 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 had talks that were be given by entomologists from different continents / countries working on diverse, ingenuitive projects that incorporate insect coloration components including production, structures, perception and selection.
