“2001: An Entomological Odyssey”

The meeting focused on the science of entomology and its diversity.

From President Larson’s Message: “Over a quarter of a century ago, when I was just starting my career in entomology, Stanley Kubrick’s monumental cinemagraphic masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey, first appeared. In that film, touching a strange obelisk dramatically accelerated the course of human evolution outward toward the stars. Today, science all around us is being profoundly affected by the impact of biotechnology. These developments and emerging tools have allowed us to unlock the universe within us as well as the organisms we study. It has led us as well as the organisms we study. It has led us into a new Century, one that promises to be the Century of Biology!”
