Eric Becker

My name is Eric Becker and I’ll be a senior at the University of Kansas.  I’m currently studying organismal biology with an unofficial concentration on entomology with a bit of arachnology.  I’m particularly interested in behavioral biology.  In addition to the research being conducted as part of the course, I’ll be using this opportunity to work with parasitoid wasps, a group of insects I have an interest in. I plan to compile a list of parasitoid wasps in Costa Rica that are attracted to cantharidin, a toxic substance produced by blister beetles.
