Two collections workshops will take place prior to the opening of the International Congress of Entomology, to be held in Orlando, Florida on September 25, 2016. “Invasive Pests, Collections as Critical Infrastructure” and “Bee Pollinators, Critical Gene Banks” are sponsored by Scientific Collections International (SciColl) and the USDA Agricultural Research Service.
The first workshop will be held in the morning and the second will start right after lunch, so you can attend one or both, as you wish. These brief workshops will increase international dialogue between those that manage scientific collections and those that use them. In short, we will address the question: How can we better utilize collections to improve and conduct research, inform environmental policy-making, interdict invasive species, and protect pollinators?
