Dr. Thomas Abbott, faculty coordinator for UConn ECE Biology and a group of fifty certified instructors discussed all things insects. Special guest speaker, from UConn’s EEB department, Professor David L. Wagner shared his research on caterpillars with the group in an interactive presentation during the morning. In the afternoon, instructors were able to tour UConn’s Research greenhouses under guidance by Living Plant Collections Manager, Clinton Morse. Instructors walked through each zone getting to take a close look at the thousands of plants thriving in the greenhouses. Later groups of instructors were able to visit the Biodiversity Research Collections with Dr. Sarah Taylor and Dr. Jane O’Donnell who shared a variety of samples from the Collections with the instructors.
