Seminars are scheduled on Wednesdays from 10:45-11:30AM Eastern Time with a Q&A session at the end of each presentation. Most seminars will be virtual events (webinars) this semester, and a few seminars will be in person at Whistler Hall room 116 (WSLR 116). All Purdue Department of Entomology personnel will be sent a link to each webinar prior to the date of the event.
