Greenville Zoo Conservation Lecture Series: Little Things that Run the World

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Though generally more widely recognized for their roles as pests, carriers of disease, and just plain nuisances, insects play extremely important beneficial roles, too, as pollinators in agricultural systems, and as key players in natural ecosystems. In this lecture we’ll get to know some of these beneficial insects, from bees to butterflies to beetles, a little better, and discuss challenges and strategies for their conservation. Our guest speaker is Dr. Michael Caterino, John and Suzanne Morse Chair of Arthropod Biodiversity and Director, Clemson University Arthropod Collection If possible, pre-register.
