Entomology 2012 to showcase the latest insect science research

December 21, 2011

The Entomological Society of America (ESA) invites scientists to submit Program Symposia for Entomology 2012, ESA's 60th Annual Meeting, which will be held in Knoxville, Tennessee, November 11-14, 2012 (to submit, go to http://bit.ly/u0iptz).

This year's theme is "A Global Society for a Global Science," and submissions for Program Symposia should reflect this theme, if possible.

The deadline for Program Symposia is January 31, 2012. After that, submissions for Section Symposia and Member Symposia will be accepted.

Entomology 2012 will attract more than 3,000 researchers, professors, extension service personnel, adminstrators, research technicians, consultants, graduate and undergraduate students, and others interested in the science of entomology from around the globe.

Covering all aspects of the science, the symposia will provide insight into many of the world's most vexing problems that affect the global community.

#509 Anisogamy: The Beginning of Male and Female
This week we discuss how the sperm and egg came to be, and how a difference of reproductive interest has led to sexual conflict in bed bugs. We'll be speaking with Dr. Geoff Parker, an evolutionary biologist credited with developing a theory to explain the evolution of two sexes, about anisogamy, sexual reproduction through the fusion of two different gametes: the egg and the sperm. Then we'll speak with Dr. Roberto Pereira, research scientist in urban entomology at the University of Florida, about traumatic insemination in bed bugs.
