The SWRS is excited to host the second Weevil Course to be held 5 - 13 August 2014. This course follows the popular template of other insect taxonomy courses offered at the Southwestern Research Station. The team of anticipated course instructors includes Nico Franz (Arizona State University), Robert Anderson (Canadian Museum of Nature), Charles O'Brien (Green Valley, AZ).
The Weevil Course is targeted towards students, postdocs, and other biologists who have a strong interest in understanding weevil diversity and taxonomy. A limited number of student and postdoc stipends are available for qualified applicants (see link to application below). The course will emphasize weevil taxonomy, identification, and natural history, with an emphasis on North American taxa including the southwestern U.S. and Mexico.
