W.K. Kellogg Bird Sanctuary
Join us online with the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary & Luke Zehr (Lab manager in the Wetzel Lab) to explore the ecology of plants and the insects that eat them. Learn how plants interact with other organisms in their environment, like herbivorous insects. Luke will describe how he asks the question, “in what ways do insects attack plants, and how can plants defend?”, and how scientists like Luke study these interactions in nature.
Exploring with Scientists is a FREE program, but registration is required.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
Exploring with Scientists is an online series that connects upper elementary and middle school students with graduate students conducting ecological research at the Kellogg Biological Station. Each of the six programs will focus on a certain type of animal or insect and touch on how scientists collect data in the field. Participants will be able to submit questions related to natural history, research and science careers.
