Announcing one of our exciting plenary speakers: Dr. Danielle Lee (S Illinois Uni), presenting at SWEEET. Her research tests behavioral variation across gradients. Her outreach emphasizes sharing science to general audiences, particularly via outdoor programming and social media

It looks to me like the ptilinum isn’t properly contracting back into the head. See this every once in awhile in other wild caught flies

When a specimen was collected in a museum 100 years ago, who would have imagined we could extract molecules to tell the story of evolution? What amazing new things can we learn from museum collections in 2117? This may be critical for dealing with a much hotter planet.

Remember that twitter thread where we complained about women’s field pants? Well, I tried ’s fire pants & am in❤️. They’re comfortable, w/ many pockets, flexible for pitfall trap digging w/out showing off unders! Insect fieldwork in Australia is going to rock!
