Speaking: Derek Sikes, University of Alaska Museum
The University of Alaska Museum Insect Collection is a biorepository for vouchers from varied projects throughout the state. A number of examples of possible and potential climate change impacts on the terrestrial invertebrates of Alaska will be presented. These will cover various taxa including snow-field associated rove beetles, butterflies, ants, and earthworms. This work will be put in a global context.
Available online or in-person in 407 IARC/Akasofu building on the UAF campus. More information and registration is available at https://accap.uaf.edu/insects.
