Public Lecture: Are mosquitoes good for anything?

LIFEINPARK_8SEP2013On Sunday 8 September I’ll be giving a public lecture as part of the “Life in the Park” annual event at Sydney Olympic Park. Along with presentations by researchers working within the wetlands and bushland of Sydney Olympic Park, I’ll be talking about the ecological role of mosquitoes.

Beyond the pest mosquitoes that we all know (and hate) is a diverse range of species that rarely, if ever, bite and have adapted to every nook and cranny in our local environment. If you’ve ever asked “what are mosquitoes good for?”, then why not come along to this free event and find out! More information, including a map, is here.
