Entomology Training conducted at the University of the Ryukyus (July 2021)

We were invited again this year to conduct entomology training for undergraduates at the University of the Ryukyus, which has recently become an annual event. All of the students were entomology majors and had a high level of knowledge about insects, which made the field staff a bit nervous to lead the sorting of the SLAM trap samples, but we used the experience we’ve gained in the OKEON project to serve as instructors. One of the lecturers, Prof. Yoshida, gave a talk on entomology that was backed by an overwhelming amount of knowledge, and the students listened with great interest.
