Several of the Gratton Lab members travelled to Denver in early November for the annual meetings of the Entomological Society of America.
Claudio helped to organize two symposia, while a few Gratton lab members gave talks.
Brian Spiesman – talk entitled: “Landscape-scale resource continuity for enhanced biological control”
Jeremy Hemberger – talk entitled: “Temporal resource pulse decreases bumble bee foraging duration across central Wisconsin agricultural landscapes”
Mike Howe – “Pine engravers carry bacterial communities whose members reduce concentrations of host monoterpenes with variable degrees of redundancy, specificity, and capability”
Hannah Gaines Day – “Do managed bees have negative effects on wild bees?”
It was a very productive few days, and the group is already looking forward to ESA 2018 in beautiful Vancouver, BC!
