Nelle, Erica, Tarik and Greg and I recently attended the Society for the Study of Evolution conference in Raleigh, North Carolina. Nelle gave a great talk on the how host plants and symbionts impact development of Megacopta cribraria. This was based on the last chapter of her Ph.D. dissertation, which she successfully defended hours before leaving for Raleigh! Congratulations, Dr. Couret!
Tarik and Greg presented a poster on their research on squash bug symbionts.
