Insect Diversity and Plants
September 13, 2022
8:45 am - 11:00 am
Insects are the most diverse group of animals on earth. A major reason for their success is their interactions with plants.
This class will provide a hands-on introduction to the diversity of insects and to plant-insect interactions in a natural setting. In addition to being fascinating in and of themselves, plant-insect interactions are a foundation of most terrestrial ecosystems and are important in agriculture and the development of pharmaceuticals.
The class will include a brief introductory lecture, observations of insects on plants, and diversity sampling using nets.
Join Dr. Kevin Dixon of the FSU Biology Department for a hike at Fred George Greenway Park to observe and study some local flora and fauna.
Optional transportation from the TSC.
Venue: Fred George Greenway Park
