Tiger Beetles as Models for Diversity Science
November 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Tigerbeetles (Coleoptera:Cicindelidae) are one of the most popular groups of insects, and have been extensively studied with respect to their distributions, ecology, and physiology. More recently, phylogeographic and phylogenomic data have been used to address questions about taxonomically problematic groups and to more rigorously evaluate species delineations. Presenter Daniel Duran, Ph.D. Assistant Professor and Naturalist in the Department of Environmental Science at Rowan University, will discuss how this ecologically important group of insects has the potential to serve as a model system for future work in the field of biodiversity science.
This event will be streamed at the Pinelands Commission’s YouTube channel, where video from the event will be archived afterwards.
