with sound science. Her dissertation, which investigates the importance of wild bees for apple pollination, has unearthed important facts about the effects of pesticides, as well as grower knowledge and attitudes. Actively advocating for the importance of wild agricultural pollinators, Mia has been outspoken through talks around New York state and through a well-received handbook that she produced entitled Wild Pollinators of Eastern Apple Orchards and How to Conserve Them. Mia has received several research awards and fellowships, including a College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Land Grant Extension Fellowship. For the Entomological Society of America, she has served as a national meeting volunteer, moderator, program symposium co-organizer, and journal reviewer. Service in her community includes supporting events that encourage women in science and that engender appreciation of insects. At the bottom of all this study and activity, Mia simply loves insects because of the boundless sense of discovery that comes from studying them.

MAGGIE DOUGLAS started her academic career at Oberlin College, where she studied biology. Following several years advocating for sustainable agriculture in the non-profit sector, she was introduced to the world of insect ecology through the labs of Drs. Bob Denno (University of Maryland), John Lill (George Washington University), and Gina Wimp (Georgetown University). Seeing an opportunity to meld her interests in insects and agriculture, she pursued a master's degree at Penn State University under Dr. John Tooker, where she was part of an interdisciplinary cropping systems project where she studied the ecology of slugs and their natural enemies in no-till agroecosystems. Toward the end of her master's degree, she became interested in the potential non-target effects of neonicotinoid seed treatments on natural enemies, particularly through trophic transfer of toxins via tolerant herbivores. This topic forms the basis of
