NHMWrkShp14: Introduction to Ichneumonidae and general surgery

May 2 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

Trainers: Gavin Broad and Mike Fitton.

This workshop gives you an introduction to this parasitoid wasp family within the order Hymenoptera. Unlike other parasites, parasitoids kill their hosts and are important pest controllers and one of the most diverse and species rich groups of insects. There is also the opportunity to bring along any ichneumonid specimens that you have tried to identify and would like help in confirming. The workshop covers day and nocturnal species of this parasitoid wasp family and following recent work on species complexes, and answering any ichneumonid problems, as far as we are able.

There is no prerequisite for attendees to have attended one of our previous courses and all are free of charge to attend for either BENHS members or Non-members of the society.
