The Governing Board of the Entomological Society of America (ESA) has elected ten new Fellows of the Society for 2013. The election as a Fellow acknowledges outstanding contributions to entomology in one or more of the following: research, teaching, extension, or administration. The following Fellows will be recognized during Entomology 2013 -- ESA's 61st Annual Meeting -- which will be held November 10-13, 2013 in Austin, Texas:
DR. CHARLES VINCENT is a research scientist at the Horticultural Research and Development Centre of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada at Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, Canada. He is recognized as an international leader in agricultural entomology, and has demonstrated innovation in research and development of alternative insect management methods to conventional insecticides.
Born in Montreal, Quebec in 1953, he received a B.S. in agriculture from Universit Laval (Quebec City) in 1978, and an M.S. (1980) and a Ph.D. (1983) in entomology from McGill University. In 1983 he joined the Horticultural Research and Development Centre of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada at Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. He was appointed adjunct professor at McGill University in 1984; professeur adjoint at the Universit du Qubec Montral in 1991; and professeur invit in 2000 at the l'Universit Picardie Jules Verne (Amiens, France), where he taught a one-month workshop on scientific writing every year.
Vincent's research involved finding alternatives to insecticides in horticultural crops. His research was instrumental in the development and commercialization of Virosoft CP4 (in collaboration with Biotepp Inc.), the first insecticidal virus registered for agricultural use in Canada, and Requiem, a Chenopodium-based botanical (in collaboration with Codena Inc.). He has achieved an international reputation for important contributions to classical biological control and physical control methods for management of insect pests in diverse agric
