Come on, gang, surely we all have very cool specimens in our collections that are connected with interesting stories related to where, how (or how long ago), or under what circumstances they were collected. Perhaps some enigma they resolved or that their discovery led to?!
Please send me a title for our proposed new ECN segment, Giving Voices to Our Specimens: Vignettes from a Myriad Chapters in our Entomological Collections.
These are meant to be short stories - a title slide and a limit of four additional slides – so up to 5 slides in a 5 minute presentation.
