"Conservation Is Beautiful: The Art of Saving Insects"

The human impact on biodiversity contributes significantly to an unprecedented global rate of extinction, noticed by many in the decline of once common insect species (like those featured in the work by Eric Adjetey Anang). It follows, then, that human intervention is essential in preventing these losses. Professor O’Neal will discuss a novel conservation practice, developed in Iowa, that encourages scientists and farmers to collaborate in taking land out of agricultural production and replacing it with native prairie habitat. This practice has positive impacts on many species, including bees, leading to a more sustainable, aesthetically interesting landscape.

Professor O’Neal is an associate professor of soybean entomology at Iowa State University. He received his PhD and did postdoctoral research at Michigan State University in East Lansing.

Lecture support provided through a UI International Programs Major Projects Award.
