A vast majority of insect species are terrestrial, but several unrelated groups have adapted to living in freshwater ecosystems for either some or all their life cycles. How do they do this, and what can we learn about water quality from these stream-dwelling arthropods?
Come to Carnegie Science Center to hear Andrea Kautz, Research Entomologist at Powdermill Nature Reserve, as she answers this question and more at the next Café Scientifique. During the presentation, Kautz will talk about the adaptations of various insect species and the current research project she is working on at Powdermill Nature Reserve, the environmental research station of Carnegie Museum of Natural History.
Café Scientifique: Aquatic Macroinvertebrates will be held on Monday, October 1 from 7:00 until 9:00 pm at Carnegie Science Center. A cash bar will be open from 6:00 to 7:30 pm. Admission is free. For more details, or to register, visit the Café Scientifique event page.
