Ft. Lauderdale, FL, USA

This summer, the University of Florida Entomology and Nematology Department is offering a unique week-long workshop on termite biology on June 19-23 2017.

This course provides a wide perspective on termite biology (evolution, diversity, ecology, behavior, symbiosis, distribution, morphology, control, collection techniques). This session includes field collection trips and classes.

The course will take place at the UF/IFAS Ft. Lauderdale Research and Education Center, and is organized by Dr. Thomas Chouvenc, Rudolf Scheffrahn, Nan-Yao Su and William Kern.

We highly encourage students and other academic to participate to this workshop, as it provides in-depth insight to many aspects of termite biology, within the general framework of the study of social insects.
