Abreu and Fetchen Co-author "Distribution, Survival, and Development of Spotted Lanternfly on Host Plants Found in North America"
Senior biology major Leslie Abreu and recent graduate Miranda Fetchen ('20) are co-authors on a research article published in the journal Environmental Entomology. The article, "Distribution, Survival, and Development of Spotted Lanternfly on Host Plants Found in North America" features a series of experiments that test the preference and suitability of potential host plants for the invasive spotted lanternfly. Miranda conducted one of these experiments in greenhouses on Cedar Crest Campus during the summer of 2018. Leslie worked for the US Department of Agriculture in the same year to conduct several experiments in the field. The findings will be used to make more informed pest management decisions for the spotted lanternfly.To view these students click here: https://cedarcrest.meritpages.com/achievements/Abreu-and-Fetchen-Co-author-Distribution-Survival-and-Development-of-Spotted-Lanternfly-on-Host-Plants-Found-in-North-America-/128353
