Entomological Society of America 2012 Student Results

The ISU Entomology Department had seven students compete at the the recent Entomological Society of America meetings in Knoxville, TN:

  • Kelly Gill Insect pollinators in soybean fields: Community identification and sampling method analysis;
  • Michael Dunbar Effects of Rye Cover Crop on Arthropod Communities;
  • Eric Clifton Impact of conventional versus organic agriculture on entomopathogenic fungi;
  • Jessie Sun Gene flow and genetic structure of European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis) E- and Z- pheromone races in the northeastern US: Greater isolation of E-race populations;
  • Amanda Hoffmann Effects of entomopathogens on fitness costs of Bt resistance in western corn rootworm;
  • Aaron Gross Functional characterization of a putative octopamine/tyramine receptor from the southern cattle tick, Rhipicephalus microplus;
  • Michael McCarville Is pyramiding resistance the answer for soybean aphid management?.

Eric Clifton won second place and Mike McCarville won first place; both presentations were in the Plant-Insect Ecosystem Section.
