2005 ESA Annual Meeting

2005 ESA Annual Meeting

December 15-18, 2005

Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Sex, Bugs, and Rock ‘n Roll—Entomologists Impacting Health, Hunger, Biodiversity, and the Environment was the theme for the 2005 Annual Meeting in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. President Michael Ivie chose a theme that would “encompass the scope of our diverse Society, yet would excite the Public. The biological imperative is perhaps the most pervasive aspect of our work with insects. Our most innovative, exciting, and effective research has centered around it: sterile male release, pheromone-based monitoring, sexual selection, mating disruption, genitalia as diagnostic tools, reproductive physiology, population genetics, heritability, on and on. It is through this work that entomologists are impacting the well-being of the world.”
