So it's been....all summer... since we have updated our followers on our research progress.
Obviously we were productive as we are now at the Entomological Society of America meeting in Reno, NV, presenting various presentations and posters. Our aims are obviously to shock and awe! (or just bring awareness to our awesome projects)
The Agricultural Landscape Ecology (ALE) Lab is located in the Entomology Department at The Ohio State University in Wooster, OH. We study beneficial arthropods. We are interested in how disturbances within the landscape such as agricultural management practices, invasions of exotic species, and land use changes influence beneficial arthropods and the ecosystem services they provide such as pollination and herbivore suppression. In this blog we will post information about our research and outreach activities as well as current happenings in the lab.
