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

n identification and synthesis of insect sex pheromones and on insect chemical communication.

The Leal lab recently unveiled DEET's mode of action. Contrary to previous hypotheses, DEET doesn't jam the senses or mask the smell of the host; mosquitoes smell the repellent directly and avoid it.

Dr. Leal is a dynamic teacher at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. He incorporates film clips on biochemistry and insect behavior in sophisticated multi-media lectures, and he gives mid-term and final exams orally to expand the intellectual experience of his students.

Internationally recognized, Dr. Leal received the 2007 Silverstein-Simeone Award from the International Society of Chemical Ecology (ISCE), and he is a past president of ISCE and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. His native country of Brazil recognized him with its Medal of the Entomological Society of Brazil in 1995 and with its Merit in Science (equivalent of ESA Fellow) this year. He is also a recipient of the highest honor (Gakkaisho) bestowed by the Japanese Society of Applied Entomology and Zoology. Under his tenure as chair, the UC Davis Department of Entomology was ranked last November as the number-one department in the country by the Chronicle of Higher Education.

ESA Student Awards

Student Activity Award (Sponsored by Monsanto Company)This award recognizes an ESA student member for outstanding contributions to the Society, his/her academic department, and the community, while simultaneously achieving academic excellence. David R. Coyle, this year's winner, is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison working with Dr. Ken Raffa. His research is on the ecology and impact of a suite of invasive root-feeding weevils that inhabit the Lake States. Specifically, he is investigating the impact of larval root feeding in a northern hardwood forest, larval host location behavior, adult hos
