Date:9/28/2008

ation of California, the Hazeltine Student Research Fellowship from UC Davis, and a Travel Award from the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. Chris has been a member of ESA and has participated in Annual Meetings since 2000.

Dr. Amit Sethi (Southeastern Branch) received his B.S. in agriculture (honors in plant protection) and his M.S. in entomology from the Punjab Agricultural University in India. He obtained his Ph.D. at the University of Florida, where he studied the biochemical basis for host plant resistance to several insect species in romaine lettuce, and is now continuing as a postdoctoral associate on the same project.

Amit has claimed ten prizes for his research presentations at each state, regional, and national entomological meeting that he has attended. He has written 19 publications and received many research and travel grants. He has delivered several extension talks on agricultural IPM, and he was a teaching assistant in insect ecology for four years.

Amit served as historian for the graduate student organization of the department, as coordinator of the Seminar Committee for several years, and he was active on the department's Social Committee. He was elected mayor of his graduate student housing, and he served in a leadership role on the Mayor's Council. His concern for the welfare of the graduate student community inspired him to establish a butterfly garden on the grounds of graduate housing for the enjoyment of the residents. He has contributed to the ESA, as well as to the Florida Entomological Society, through service (volunteering at registration and presentation preview), participation in Branch and national meetings, involvement in the Linnaean games, and publications in ESA journals.

Robert Puckett (Southwestern Branch) is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Entomology at Texas A&M University under the advisement of Dr. Marvin Harris. His dissertation work addresses field ec
