We are thrilled that two of our undergraduate researchers, Lucas Lauter and Owen Ireton, were able to present their research at the University of Missouri’s Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol. They presented posters under the capitol rotunda in Jefferson City and met other students and state legislators. Notably, these are the first in person posters presented by our lab since the entomology meeting in 2019!

Owen presented work he’s been working with grad student Rachel Brant on honeybee competition with native bees around St. Louis. Lucas presented on work he’s been doing with grad student Avery Baker on what bees find memorable about flowers and other bees. Great job representing the lab and our campus!

The campus newspaper wrote an article about the event. https://blogs.umsl.edu/news/2022/04/11/um-system-undergraduate-research-day-2022/
