This is the ONLY course that offers a complete coverage of the entire order Hymenoptera, including collecting techniques and curatorial methods. This offering will feature a symposium on the last day focusing on a breadth of research topics covering hymenopteran phylogenetics, biology, ecology, biocontrol, etc. Details are available at: www.hymcourse.org.
