A Memorable Week Pending for UC Davis Entomologists!

Next week promises to be memorable week for entomologists at the University of California, Davis. Oh, how they wish they could clone themselves so they could be in two places at the same time: in San Diego and on the UC Davis campus. First off is the...

They study bees, ants, fruit flies and spider flies. And that's just a small portion of what they do. And what a difference they're making! Four UC Davis entomologists won awards from the Pacific Branch, Entomological Society of America (PBESA). They...

It all came down to a question about a Dutch scientist, a microscopist from the 17th century. Which team--the UC Berkeley-UC Davis team or the Washington State University team--would win? That was the white-knuckle scene at the Linnaean Games...

Congrats to Shirley Luckhart, Marek Borowiec and Ralph Washington Jr.

Ant specialist Marek Borowiec, who received his doctorate in entomology in June 2016 from UC Davis, studying with major professor Phil Ward, won the PBESA Systematics, Evolution, and Biodiversity Award. This photo was taken in Madagascar by friend Kimiora Ward.

When the Pacific Branch, Entomological Society of America, meets for its 101 annual conference April 2-5 in Portland, Ore., three UC Davis-affiliated scientists will receive special awards. One recipient is a faculty member, one is a postdoctoral...
