Beetles and the Art of Discovering Biodiversity.

What species is that? In this workshop, Andrew will draw on his experience with Desert Stink Beetles to teach participants about beetle diversity and the process of discovering new species.  The class will examine biodiversity at many different levels, from backyard discovery to genetic testing.  During the lab section, participants will learn how to prepare research-grade museum specimens from locally collected insects.
