Funded by the University of Maryland Sustainability Fund, Helen’s team (Felicia Schectman, Yasmine Helbling, Fiona Torok, and Jenna Kraemer) produced insect collections organizes by ecosystem services, as well as posters explaining the value of insects in their performance of ecosystem services like pollination, pest control, and decomposition. These materials are now on display at three locations on campus, including (the STEM library, 4th floor of McKeldin Library, and 1st floor of the Plant Sciences building). We are pleased that students, staff, and faculty can visit these displays and learn about the importance and value of insects. More about this project can be accessed here.
