e various components or blends. Where appropriate, these studies extend to the development of practical applications for insect pheromones and related chemicals that can be exploited for detection, sampling, and management of insects. His group has worked with the semiochemistry of hundreds of species in several insect orders. In addition to chemical ecology, Millar's group has worked on biological control of invasive weevils and cerambycid beetles, and on substrate-borne vibrational communication in true bugs. Much of his work has been done with collaborators, reflecting the multidisciplinary nature of his research program. Millar has published more than 250 scientific papers, 24 book chapters and review articles, and four edited books. He has graduated four M.S. and three Ph.D. students, with five Ph.D. students currently in his group. He has also mentored 17 postdoctoral scientists and 25 visiting scientists.
Millar has been the presenter or a coauthor on more than 200 invited and more than 300 submitted presentations at statewide, national, and international conferences. His work has been recognized by several national ESA awards, including the Recognition Award in Entomology (2001), the Entomological Foundation's Team IPM Award (2006), the Entomological Foundation's Award for Excellence in IPM (2008), and the ESA Pacific Branch's C. W. Woodworth Award. He was elected as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2003, and has been selected as the 2014 Silver Medal winner by the International Society of Chemical Ecology, in recognition of career achievement in chemical ecology.
DR. RANDALL T. SCHUH, George Willett Curator Emeritus at the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in New York City is recognized for his research on the taxonomy of Hemiptera-Heteroptera, especially Miridae, the higher-level classification of the Heteroptera, and cladistic methodology.
