Monday, February 17, 2020

Title: Trichoptera of Eastern North America: Morphology, Molecular Systematics, Ecology, and New Research Directions.

Instructors: John Morse and Paul Frandsen

Description: This seminar focuses on the natural history and taxonomy of caddisflies (Trichoptera) in northeastern North America, including systematics, ecology, and behavior of larvae and adults, with emphasis on those aspects important in ecological studies, biological monitoring of water quality, and sport fishing. Insects will be collected from local habitats and resulting specimens will be identified in the laboratory. Learned skills will be transferable to other regions.
