Maple Scholars Present Honeybee Research

On Friday, October 28, Biology students Lynn Weaver and Lisa Weaver presented the results of their summer research with Dr. Andy Ammons through the Goshen College Maple Scholars program at the annual Ohio Valley Entomological Association (OVEA) meeting at Kentucky State University in Frankfort, KY.  The mission of OVEA is to encourage and cultivate the professional development of students (undergraduates and Master’s/PhD graduate students) and promote the study of entomology as a science.

The first OVEA meeting was held in 1985, and has been held annually since then in colleges and universities throughout the Midwest.  Lynn Weaver presented on “Ethanol Concentration Preference in Apis mellifera.”  Lisa Weaver presented on “Genetic Polymorphisms Between the Italian and Carniolan Subspecies of Apis mellifera.”

Lynn Weaver received second place in the undergraduate division competition for her presentation.  We would like to congratulate these students for their hard work and professional accomplishments!
