Emeritus College Online Seminar with Dr. John Morse

September 30 (Wednesday) 10:00am – 11:30amOnline Seminar:  Freshwater Pollution in Asia and the Role of Insects in Its Management with Dr. John Morse, Professor Emeritus of Entomology: The causes and effects of freshwater pollution will be reviewed with emphasis on the seriousness of the problems in southern Asia. Sampling the communities of insects and other visible invertebrates has been demonstrated in the USA and other developed countries to be the most effective and efficient way to assess the severity of the problem. Constraints on use of this technology in Asia include a poor knowledge of the fauna, few up-to-date diagnostic resources, and limited training and research. Necessary directions for future research and outreach include faunistic studies, description of freshwater life forms, discovery of taxon-specific traits, and training of aspiring professionals. Please plan to join us for this session.
