Insects: Stranger than Fiction
April 15, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Our April program will be presented by Dr. Jeffrey Heilveil, Associate Professor and Chair of the Biology Department at the State University at Oneonta. He will speak on Insects: Stranger than Fiction. Jeffrey Helveil Master’s and Doctorate are in Entomology from the University of Illinois, where he specialized in the life history, dispersal patterns, and pathologies of insects from trout streams. Jeff and his students at SUNY Oneonta research an array of topics from how urbanization and reservoir construction impact aquatic insects, to gene flow in carpenter bees, and even how to predict where aquatic insects live based on environmental variables. Jeff teaches courses in entomology, stream ecology, and population genetics. Please join us for this event, scheduled for Friday, April 15, 7:30 p.m. at the Elm Park Methodist Church, 401 Chestnut St. Oneonta. The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For more information, contact Andy Mason, 607-652-2162, AndyMason@earthling.net.
