Virtual American Entomological Society Meeting

April 26th, 2023
Wednesday, April 26, 2023, 4 pm EDT (US)

Meeting Topic:

Mary Treat, Entomologist Extraordinaire, Part 2
AES members may recall Deborah Boerner Ein and her presentation in November 2021, when she offered a sneak peek of her Mary Treat biography, with a special emphasis on Treat’s entomological research and writings. Mary Treat corresponded with Charles Darwin as they both studied insectivorous plants, but her correspondence with entomologists—Benjamin D. Walsh, Charles V. Riley, Auguste Forel, Henry McCook, and others—gives us a broader, more accurate view of Mary Treat’s life and groundbreaking work in the natural sciences.

Deborah returns with an update now that the book, the first definitive biography of the trailblazing naturalist, has been published. The book is available at as well as on Amazon and other major online booksellers (additional links and more information is available at

At this meeting, we will also present the Calvert Awards for the best entomological science projects in the Philadelphia region.

Virtual meeting link will be emailed to all members prior to the date.
