MNPS chose the Dogbane family, which includes milkweeds, for our theme this year. As we continue learning about the fascinating Apocynaceae, we welcome entomologist Warren E. Steiner who can tell us more about the interactions between these plants and their many associated insects.
Speaker: Warren Steiner.
Warren has served as President of the Entomological Society of Washington (1998) and the Botanical Society of Washington (2005). He has published more than 65 scientific articles in entomology, including the description of a new family of water beetles co-discovered with Paul Spangler, and a recent listing of the “darkling beetles” known to occur in Maryland with historical records from Plummers Island.
Location: Kensington Library, 4201 Knowles Ave, Kensington, MD.
Doors open at 7:00 PM. The program is free and open to the public. Registration is not required.
