AT: Speaker Series: Tyler Hedlund Speaks on Orthoptera

November 7, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Virtual – Zoom Info Below

Come learn about Orthoptera! The grasshoppers, katydids, and crickets of North America (north of Mexico) present a highly diverse species assemblage. The presentation will go over taxonomy, identification, ecology, and more! While the presentation will cover most of North America, there will be a focus on the Texas fauna.

Tyler has a Master’s degree in Entomology from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where he worked on ticks and tick-borne disease. He discovered the allure of “hoppers” while working at the Illinois Natural History Survey after getting his degree and hasn’t looked back. He currently works for the US Department of Agriculture, first as an Area Identifier in Laredo, TX, and now as a Plant Health Safeguarding Specialist in Champaign, IL
