ect vectors of plant pathogens, and the impacts of invasive species on community structure and function. Laura considers herself to be an entomologist and community ecologist with research focused on plant-insect interactions in an applied context. She is the recipient of the ESA Pacific Branch's 2013 Student Leadership Award. Upon the completion of her PhD at the University of Idaho, she will be working as a postdoctoral research associate with Ian Kaplan at Purdue University, focusing on biological control of insects in high tunnel agricultural production of vegetable crops.

DAVID LOWENSTEIN is a graduate student at the University of Illinois under the guidance of Dr. Emily Minor. David's research interests include the roles of insects in agroecosystems and the interactions between hymenopterans and plants. He has collaborated with a diverse group of stakeholders, from ginseng growers in Wisconsin to urban gardeners in Illinois. His interests in entomology began after participating in an independent research project studying biological control of the Colorado potato beetle. David received a master's in entomology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison under the direction of Dr. Russell Groves. During that time, he sampled wild bees in pickling cucumber and studied the impact of land cover on wild bee populations. Currently, he is investigating pollination services in urban neighborhoods and the interaction between land cover, yard management decisions, and pollinators. David promotes the importance of insects and their ecosystem services in urban areas. The high rate of vacant lots in the urban core brings opportunities to repurpose some of this land for agricultural enterprise, and he aims to study how changes in land use will impact the pollinator and parasitoid communities. Ultimately, David's goal is to broaden the public's knowledge of plant-pollinator interactions and the conservation of beneficial insects in agriculture through a combinat
