This Network provides an opportunity to mentor and encourage women working, studying, or interested in entomology. It is open to anyone seeking to promote career and leadership opportunities for women in the field of entomology.
Looking for symposium participants: Got Bycatch?
Good afternoon, everyone!As entomologists we know that many of our survey and research activities capture numerous specimens in addition to the insects we are studying… sometimes at ghastly levels. There has been a recent surge of interest in the problem and value of bycatch across entomology, and some of us would like to organize a symposium on this topic for the ESA annual meeting in St. Louis, 17-20 November 2019. We are interested in hearing from colleagues across the entomological…Read more…

Tell us a bit about yourself and what interests you in entomology. How do you see promoting entomology as a career? How did you first become aware that it might be a career for you? Let's get a conversation started!
I was a French major in undergrad and never really knew about entomology until several years later I took a course in Agricultural Entomology. During my career, I've worked with aphids as vectors of plant viruses, plant virus epidemiology, migration and dispersal of aphids, and biodiversity informatics (classifying information about groups of flies). So I have feet in P-IE (Plant-Insect Ecosystems) and SysEB (Systematics, Evolution, & Biodiversity) as well as the Entomological Collections Network. I miss being able to attend in-person meetings and realize how lucky I was to have done so over so many years.
I am a graduate of Food Technology,
from YABA COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY,
I lives in Ogun State Nigeria.from
I am working presently in Insurance Broking Firm in my country Nigeria.
But recently, my brokerage firm
invested in a Farm Project.
I now handle a research about preservation of cereals and grains, that is when I developed my interest in weevils and some other insects that cause damages to farm products.
Ever since then I really have a passion to become an ENTOMOLOGIST.
I read through a lot of inspiring stories, it really encouraged me to forge ahead. Thank you for this.
You are all warmly invited to attend this year's Arthropod Genomics (i5k) session in the Biodiversity Genomics meeting, being held in a virtual format from wherever you are! We are inviting talk and virtual poster submissions for all types of insect genomics projects. From 5-9 October, we will have thematic sessions on genomics grouped around “Regional, National and International Projects”, “Taxon-focussed Projects”, “Systems Approaches” and “Technology Advances”. Each will have a dedicated or shared workshop session, and a dedicated poster session and meeting room. The final program will be posted on the website soon.
Registration is for access to the meeting; there is no fee.
Full details and the registration link are available at:
