Arthropod Diversity in the Subalpine Region of Maunakea
Apr 20, 2017 7:00 PM
A Maunakea Speakers Series Presentation by Heather Stever, research associate in Dr. Jesse Eiben's "Teaching and Research Arthropod Collection" (TRAC) laboratory
The next scheduled program in the Maunakea Speaker Series will be held Thursday, April 20 at 'Imiloa's Moanahoku Hall. This exciting free lecture is open to the public and starts at 7 pm.
Insects are all around us. Heather Stever will explain the difference between insects and arthropods, and why they are so important in Hawai'i. Attendees will also learn about the arthropod diversity in the subalpine region of Maunakea and the important role these residents play in making Maunakea what it is.
Stever recently earned a Master of Science degree in Tropical Conservation Biology and Environmental Science from UH Hilo, completing her thesis on arthropod diversity in Maunakea's subalpine region. She plans to continue studying Maunakea's arthropods when she enters the Entomology-PhD program at UH Manoa later this year.
