Insect Collapse

Instructor: Frank Drummond
Class size 5-40 students
6 seats remaining

Tuesday, September 1 • 1-2:30 pm 

While it might not seem like it as you are being bitten by mosquitoes while trying to weed the garden, insect populations are declining globally. Frank Drummond will explain what is happening and the impact it will have on us.

Dr. Francis “Frank” Drummond is widely recognized as the personification of the University of Maine’s land-grant mission.

Frank, a professor in the university’s School of Biology and Ecology and a faculty member with Cooperative Extension, is a gifted teacher and an internationally respected scholar.

Frank says his current research is focused on four topics, all of significant relevance to Maine’s economy: the ecology and population genetics of wild blueberry plants; factors that affect plant pollination; blueberry plant production; and the ecological and physiological effects that herbivores have on fruit production.
