New Lab Member Alert! Lexi is joining us in the MS program. She is co-advised by Rich Zack (professor and curator in the MT James Entomological Collection).
We are excited to welcome Lexi Menth to the lab. She is starting at WSU this summer so that she can get a jump on fieldwork. Lexi is undertaking a cool project -- an insect survey of the Fairchild Air Force Base, located west of Spokane. She'll be using various techniques to collect insects, such as light trapping, pitfall traps, and sweep netting. We are working with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and Silas Bossert is also a PI on the grant. Everyone is anticipating the results of the next two years of sampling!
