Arthro-Pod EP 104: Going Bugwood with Joe LaForest


Howdy bug lovers! On today's episode of Arthro-Pod, the gang meets up with Joe LaForest, Associate director of the Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health at the University of Georgia. Joe was kind enough to talk to us about his work with two great entomology projects, Bugwood and EDDMaps. Bugwood in particular may be familiar to many listeners as a database of images that are free to use (with attribution of course). Dive in with us as we get to hear the origins of these projects, how we can all contribute, and how they may best serve you.
