Kenneth F. Raffa to give Founders' Memorial Lecture at Entomology 2010
Date:8/3/2010

Dr. Kenneth F. Raffa, a professor at the University of Wisconsin Department of Entomology, has been selected to deliver the Founders' Memorial Award lecture at Entomology 2010 the 58th Annual Meeting of the Entomological Society of America (ESA) this December in San Diego, California. The honoree is the late Dr. Andrew Delmar Hopkins.

ESA established the Founders' Memorial Award in 1958 to honor scientists whose lives and careers enhanced entomology as a profession and who made significant contributions to the field in general and in their respective subdisciplines. At each Annual Meeting, the recipient of the award addresses the conferees during Sunday's opening Plenary session to honor the memory and career of an outstanding entomologist.

Dr. Raffa has been professor of forest entomology for the last 25 years at the University of Wisconsin. He has been highly prolific, producing 290 scientific publications (200 peer-reviewed papers, two co-edited books, two annual reviews, 58 book chapters/proceedings, 28 technical/outreach reports). He has mentored 39 graduate students, 11 postdoctoral associates, 15 undergraduate interns, worked closely with approximately 200 undergraduate assistants, and served on approximately 65 graduate student committees. He teaches three regular courses, and has taught five graduate seminars. Dr. Raffa has participated in approximately 60 special committee assignments and panels for the university, and state and federal governments, many of the latter dealing with invasive species. He has served as an associate/subject editor for three major North American journals (currently Environmental Entomology and Ecology).

Dr. Raffa has devoted much of his career to studying factors that affect the population dynamics of bark beetles, particularly their interactions with constitutive and induced plant defense chemistry, microbial symbionts, and natural enemies. He has also studied the ecology and behavior o
