Insect Signs

MCZ 101, 26 Oxford Street, Harvard University

Tracks and Sign of Insects

Most of the signs insects leave are either overlooked or, when they are observed, seem difficult to decipher. Noah Charney and Charles Eiseman spent two years researching signs left by insects and how to read insect tracks. The knowledge they acquired is presented in their new book “Tracks and Sign of Insects and Other Invertebrates.” The authors will join us for a presentation about insect sign and share interesting stories about their adventures gathering material for their unique book. Copies of the book will be available for purchase, and signing, after the talk.

The talk is free and open to the public. The meeting is readily accessible via public transportation. Parking is available in the Oxford Street Garage with advance arrangement, as described here, or (usually but not always) at spaces on nearby streets. Everyone is also welcome to join us for dinner before the talk ( beginning at 6:15 PM) at the Harvard Law School cafeteria, on the second floor of Harkness Commons.

CEC meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month from October through May. The evening schedule typically includes an informal dinner (6:15 to 7:15 PM) followed by our formal meeting (7:30 – 9:00 PM). The latter begins with club business and is followed by a 50 minute entomology related presentation. Membership is open to amateur and professional entomologists.
