Regular April Meeting: Insects and Agriculture

April 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The main talk will be:
Can conserving insects provide value to agricultural production? by Paul Manning
Agriculture practices are known to harm the diversity and abundance of insects. Because insects provide many benefits to ecosystems, altering insect communities may impact the functions and services they support. Using dung beetles as a model system, this talk will explore how conserving insects can provide value to agricultural production.
Paul is an insect ecologist with broad interests in conservation and natural history. He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Dalhousie University.
