Braconid Wasps Webinar
7th December | 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Braconidae is a large family of parasitoid wasps, with about 1,500 species in Britain. Their hosts include caterpillars, beetles, flies and many other insects, so they play critical roles in the environment. Recognising the subfamilies of braconids is the essential first step towards gaining familiarity with some of the species, and their fascinating biology. This webinar will run through the features which are critical for identifying braconids, the characteristics of each subfamily, and briefly summarise their hosts relationships.
Tutor Information: Gavin Broad is the principal curator in charge of the entomology collections at the Natural History Museum, London, and a specialist on the taxonomy of ichneumonoid wasps.
We will end with an interactive question and answer session.
