March 5: Visiting scientist explores ‘Why ants rule the world’

Learn about the global impact of a tiny insect at “Why Ants Rule the World,” Tuesday, March 5, at WSU Pullman.

Hosted by WSU’s Entomology Graduate Student Association, Alex Wild, Curator of Entomology at the University of Texas, leads the seminar, 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in FSHN Building Room T-101. All are welcome to attend.

Wild is a Texas-based biologist who started photographing insects in 2002 as a creative complement to his scientific work on ant taxonomy and evolution. He holds a doctorate in entomology from the University of California-Davis, and his photographs appear in numerous natural history museums, magazines, books, television programs, and other media.
