Abstract
Hymenoptera (bees, wasps, and ants) are some of the most numerous and diverse animals on the planet. The group includes pollinators, predators, parasitoids, herbivores and practically everything in-between. They can be found in almost every terrestrial habitat around the world (as well as a few aquatic ones) and many are essential in keeping food on our tables and pest populations under control, while others are pests themselves or are species of medical concern. Despite this insect group’s importance, and how integral it is in shaping the world we see today, there are still many fundamental unanswered questions about the taxa in this amazing group. This seminar will focus on Hymenoptera biodiversity and what the E. M. Tucker lab at the U-M Museum of Zoology is doing to explore unanswered questions about these extraordinary creatures.
