I presently offer the Introductory and Applied Entomology course at the Crookston campus of the University of Minnesota. In addition I have provided a distance delivered courses in Introductory Entomology to Southwest State University in Marshall, MN and Digital Mapping and Interpretation of Populations, cooperatively offered to both the University of Minnesota and North Dakota State University. This course examines the uses of Geographic Information Systems and spatial statistics to map and analyse population dynamics. It is simultaneously delivered to both UMN's St Paul and NDSU's Fargo campuses.
