Biology Seminar Series
Dr. Ed Mondor, Georgia Southern University
"Game of Clones: Behavioral, Morphological and Transgenerational Plasticity in Aphids"

Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2019
Rankin Science West, Room 183
4 p.m. 

This event is open to the campus and community

Dr. Ed Mondor received a B.S.c in Psychology with a minor in Botany (1993) at Brandon University, Brandon, MD, Canada. He received his M.S.c in Zoology (1996) at the University of Alberta, working on tachinid parasitoids of the forest tent caterpillar. Mondor received his Ph.D. from Simon Fraser University (2001), with a project focusing on the evolution of alarm signaling behavior in aphids. He completed postdocs at the University of Calgary (2003) and the University of Wisconsin-Madison (2005) and was employed as a Junior Entomologist with the University of Hawaii (2006), prior to arriving at Georgia Southern University (2006 - Present), where he is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biology at Georgia Southern.

Along with teaching three courses every semester, he has almost 40 peer-reviewed publications in journals such as Ethology, Functional Ecology, Global Change Biology, Journal of Evolutionary Biology, Journal of Insect Behavior, and PLoS One and has had his research featured in the Editor’s Choice section of Science Magazine. In addition to his studies on insect behavior, ecology and evolution, he is the only practicing Forensic Entomologist in Georgia. He has assisted various law enforcement agencies (e.g., Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office, Georgia State Patrol, Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Homicide Unit) with determining the “time of death” of human decedents.
