Identifying Bugs in the Wild

Instructor: Dr. Paul Whitaker

Format: Blended

Dates/Times: virtual Monday June 26 6:30-8:30 pm; in person Saturday July 8 12-4 pm

Location: UW Stevens Point, Schmeeckle Reserve

Elective (6 hours)

Description: The virtual sessions will cover basic entomology content, including insect body structure, life stages, life cycles, and ecology; an overview of the diversity of insects associated with land plants and introduce the insect (or photograph) collection project. Ideally, participants will spend some time between the virtual session and the in-person session to begin working on a collection.  This in person session will include demonstrations of and practice using techniques in collecting, rearing, and identifying insects. It is hoped that participants will feel better equipped to identify insects associated with plants and to understand plant-insect interactions. Weather permitting, the class will end with an insect walk in Schmeeckle Reserve on the UWSP campus.
