Predator Insects and Wasps: Their Roles and Benefits. Sunday, 3:00 to 4:30 p.m.
An enthusiastic student of insect ecology and predator-prey interactions, Ben Iuliano of the UW Entomology Gratton Lab studies how the availability of prey affects predator population dynamics and the benefits of predators as biological controls. He will discuss wasps and other predatory insects in our gardens. By understanding these misunderstood insects, we can take steps to maximize the health of our urban ecosystems. This indoor, February-friendly, event will be held as an extension of the Wednesday Nite @ the Lab series.
Location: The Genetics Biotechnology Center Auditorium. At the intersection of University Avenue and Randall Avenue it is served by over a dozen Metro bus lines. Parking is available for a small fee in Lot 20 at 1390 University Avenue. The Lot 20 garage is attached to the ADA-compliant Genetics Biotech Center, so it’s a short, protected stroll or roll from your car to The Auditorium.
Speaker: Ben Iuliano (firstname.lastname@example.org)
