“ATTACKS FROM BELOW: UNEARTHING THE IMPACTS OF BELOWGROUND HERBIVORES ON FOLIAGE FEEDER SUCCESS”
Jessica’s presentation on her above-belowground interactions research project got her first place in agriculture and animal science at this years University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum!!!!
SIP15 :The 15th international symposium on insect-plant relationships will take place from 17 to 22 August in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. The event will follow the lead of previous insect-plant interactions symposia and study novel aspects of the relationships between plants and insects, from mechanisms to evolutionary ecology. The symposium will have a multidisciplinary perspective, and will put special emphasis on the presentation of emerging new fields and hitherto neglected areas.
I’ll be giving a talk on belowground multi-trophic volatile interactions. It should be a great meeting!
Just got back from a great meeting in Ventura,CA. Great people and great talks are always inspiring!
