UC-Davis ecologist to deliver Hopkins Colloquium address on March 23
Jay A. Rosenheim, ecologist and entomologist at the University of California, Davis, will deliver the Hopkins Colloquium address at 4 p.m. Monday, March 23, in 328 Waters Hall.
His seminar is "Ecoinformatics for agricultural entomology: using data from farms to solve problems on farms." Rosenheim is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and has built a strong research program that uses insects and plants to examine fundamental ecological questions and seeks applications to agricultural production systems. He has won multiple awards for his research and teaching.
The Hopkins Colloquium is an annual award established in 1998 to honor Theodore L. Hopkins, professor emeritus of entomology at Kansas State University, for his many contributions to the science of entomology. The award supports the visit of a distinguished scientist working in an area of current importance and interest, and who brings new and important research in entomological science to the entomology department.
