Insect Communities

Marianne Espeland visited us

Recently, Marianne Espeland from the Zoological Research Museum Alexander Koenig in Bonn has visited our group. Marianne is  head of their Lepidoptera section and an old friend. At both Charles University and Institute of Entomology, she gave seminars on her hottest results from phylogenetical research of Lepidoptera on various levels, from detailed studies of some blues and skippers up to relationships between the main lepidopteran groups. She also went through our butterfly collection and still had enough time for discussions and general enjoying of the spring weather in Czechia.
