Entomological Society of America names 2008 award winners
Date:9/28/2008

ived a Ph.D. from Rutgers University in 2008. Her thesis work focused on the superfamily Libelluloidea, which comprises Macromiidae, Corduliidae and the extremely speciose family Libellulidae. She incorporated molecular and morphological analyses to determine the evolution of several behavioral and biogeographical characters within Libelluloidea. Jessica also studies convergent evolution, particularly in dragonfly wing venation patterns, which are influenced by flight behaviour. She is collaborating on several species level odonate systematics studies (e.g., Stylogomphus, Synlestes, and Syncordulia). In addition to dragonfly systematics, Jessica is interested in phylogenetic methodology. She has examined how phylogenetic hypotheses vary with ingroup and outgroup taxon selection in Dictyoptera, and has investigated the effects of model selection on divergence estimation in dragonflies. Jessica recently won an NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellowship to work on the systematics of lower termites with Dr. Dave Grimaldi at the American Museum of Natural History.

Dr. Jeffrey D. Bradshaw (North Central Branch) recently received his Ph.D. from Iowa State University in entomology and plant pathology. He was co-advised by Dr. Marlin Rice and Dr. John Hill. Jeff's research involved work on the bean leaf beetle, Cerotoma trifurcata (Chrysomelidae), and Bean pod mottle virus (BPMV) biology and management. He also used various molecular tools to identify and sequence a new strain of BPMV from Desmodium illinoense (Fabaceae), a potential reservoir host for BPMV. This work has resulted in peer-reviewed and extension publications that have received numerous awards and recognitions. Jeff has been presenting the recommendations derived from his research, and he has been author/co-author of 41 scientific presentations (17 invited) at Branch and national meetings of the ESA, the National IPM Symposium, and the American Phytopathological Society, as well as two international
