The NDSU Department of Biological Sciences is set to host a presentation by Jon Harrison, professor in the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University, Tempe.
Harrison is scheduled to present “Does our Pesticide Regulatory System Protect Pollinators? A Case Study with a Commonly-used Mitotoxic Fungicide” Friday, Sept. 17 at 3 p.m. in Van Es 101. The talk also will be available virtually through Zoom.
Everyone is welcome.
Harrison is an environmental physiologist whose research focuses on how insects function, interact with their environment and evolve. He looks at environmental and genetic factors affecting growth and development, how body and colony size affect metabolic rates and the role of pesticides in pollinator decline.
He earned his bachelor’s degree at the University of Toronto and his doctorate in environmental, population and organismal biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
The fall Biological Science Seminar Series is set to run through Dec. 10.
As a student-focused, land-grant, research university, we serve our citizens.
