S712: How to identify any insect and impress your friends! in Splash! Spring 2010 (Apr. 17 - 18, 2010)
Have you ever wondered how to tell if an insect is a butterfly, a wasp, a bee, or a beetle? With a brief introduction to insect taxonomy, we will spend the rest of our time classifying dead and live insects using a dichotomous key. Because being able to say, "Hey, look, there's a blattaria on my begonias" is so much cooler than "Look, a bug!"


S622: How to identify any insect and impress your friends! in Splash! Fall 2009 (Oct. 10 - 11, 2009)
Have you ever wondered what kind insect you found flying outside your window, crawling on your dog, or hovering over a flower? By using a dichotomous key and a brief introduction to insect anatomy, we will spend most of our time using pinned and live specimens to practice our insect identification skills. Because saying, "I found a lepidoptera pollinating my begonias" is so much cooler than, "Hey, there's a bug."
