Arthropod Diversity in the Subalpine Region of Maunakea

Location: 'Imiloa Astronomy Center

A Maunakea Speakers Series Presentation by Heather Stever, held Thursday, April 20 at ╩╗Imiloa's Moanahoku Hall.

Insects are all around us. Heather Stever will explain the difference between insects and arthropods, why they are so important in Hawai'i, and the role these residents play in making Maunakea what it is.

Stever recently earned a Master of Science degree in Tropical Conservation Biology and Environmental Science from UH Hilo, completing her thesis on arthropod diversity in Maunakea's subalpine region. She plans to continue studying Maunakea's arthropods when she enters the Entomology-PhD program at UH Manoa later this year.
