Insect Seed Predation Project Completed!

Data collection for the insect seed predation project has come to an end! Overall 5911 insect and parasitoids have emerged from the seeds and fruit that were collected on Guam and Saipan. The specimens are being sorted for the University of Guam's insect collection and can be found online on Symbiota Collections of Arthropods Network (http://scan-bugs.org/portal/index.php). This exciting work is filling an important gap in our knowledge of Guam and Saipan's seed predator communities. Stay tuned for more information as we begin to analyze the data.
