CALS Student Perspectives | Emily Meineke | Scaling up research on a tiny pest | Research from the NC Agricultural Research Service | Scoop.it

PhD student, Emily Meineke, scales up research on a tiny pest.

 

Ever noticed how it's often hotter uptown than down? On pavement vs. grass? Emily Meineke's entomology research on scale insects examines why the tiny pest is so more abundant in cities than in towns. She hypothesizes that because cities -- with more pavement and fewer trees -- create "heat islands," these local temperature rises encourage scale to thrive. Her research has important implications for understanding the potential effects of climate change.
