501st Meeting of the
Connecticut Entomological Society
How caterpillar diet breadth mediates bird protection of trees in Connecticut forests by
Dr. Michael S. Singer

February 15, 2013
Exley Science Center, Room 121,
265 Church St, Middletown,
Wesleyan University,
Middletown, CT 06459

Abstract: The connection between top predators and ecosystem properties, such as primary production, is an important area of ecological research. In Connecticut forests, the health of bird and tree populations are of special public interest. However, the ecological connection between them has received limited study. In this talk Dr. Singer will describe research from his lab that looks at this connection through an important shared link in the food web: caterpillars.

Meeting will begin at 7:30 pm followed by the featured speaker.
As always, exhibits are welcome!
