Luis Ràzuri Gonzales

[10/22/15] Congratulations to Ernesto Ràzuri Gonzales (M.S. Holzenthal), recipient of a Judd Fellowship, a $2,500 award which funds academic work abroad. This fellowship supported his work surveying the caddisfly fauna of aquatic habitats on the Andes in central Ecuador, and visits to museums and universities in Quito to examine their Trichoptera collections and establish contact with researchers. Well done, Ernie!

Steve Kells Koch [10/13/2015] You likely notice the influx of Asian lady beetles over this past unseasonably warm weekend. The Star Tribune spoke with Val Cervenka and Steve Kells regarding the massive numbers of beetles they witnessed this weekend, and MPR spoke with Bob Koch about the damage the little pests are capable of inflicting. Read the Star Trib article and listen to the MPR story for more information, but it sounds like the beetles are looking for a warm place to spend the winter, and they're here to stay.
