Fred Baxendale selected as Honorary Member of the Entomological Society of America

The Entomological Society of America (ESA) is pleased to announce the selection of Dr. Fred Baxendale as an Honorary Member of the Society. Honorary Membership acknowledges those who have served ESA for at least 20 years through significant involvement in the affairs of the Society that has reached an extraordinary level. Candidates for this honor are selected by the ESA Governing Board and then voted on by the ESA membership. Dr. Baxendale will be honored at the Awards Ceremony at Entomology 2014, ESA's Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon this November.

Dr. Baxendale is an entomology professor and director of the Forensic Science program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL). He joined the entomology faculty at UNL in 1984 as an assistant professor. He received his BS in entomology from Cornell University, and his MS and PhD in entomology from Texas A&M University.

His research and extension programs have promoted effective and environmentally responsible Integrated Pest Management strategies for insect and mite pests affecting turfgrasses, landscapes, and other horticultural plantings. His current emphasis is on identifying the insects and mites associated with buffalograss and zoysiagrass; investigating their biology, ecology, distribution and injury potential; and developing management alternatives for potential pests. He has published more than 56 refereed journal articles, and more than 200 extension publications and trade journal articles, and is frequently an invited speaker at programs throughout the region and nation.

One of the great strengths he brings to his extension programs is the enthusiasm for the subject, which he is able to convey to his audience. He has mentored numerous undergraduate and graduate students who have received competitive scholarships and fellowships and ESA awards, and have gone on to successful careers in the public and private sectors. He has contributed to entomology through many administrative roles at UNL, including extension entomology coordinator, interim department head and as currently director of the Forensic Science program. In all of these roles he has brought a high level of dedication, enthusiasm, and effort to contribute to the success of the unit.

Dr. Baxendale has frequently provided service and leadership to ESA including serving as President of ESA's North Central Branch. His accomplishments have been recognized by a variety of professional groups, and he has been honored with the ESA Distinguished Achievement Award in Extension, the NCB Distinguished Achievement Award in Extension, the Excellence in Extension Award - North Central Region, the ESA Recognition Award in Urban Entomology, the Extension Award of Merit, and many others.
