Georgia Southern professor elected president of the Georgia Entomological Society
Edward Mondor, Ph.D., associate professor of biology at Georgia Southern University, was elected president of the Georgia Entomological Society (GES) in early April. Entomology is a branch of zoology which covers the study of insects and their relationship with humans, the environment and other organisms.
Mondor has been involved in leadership positions with GES for several years. Last year he served as president-elect, and in prior years he served on the site selection committee, the local arrangement committee and the student affairs committee. As president-elect, he was responsible for organizing the annual 2018 GES meeting held jointly with the state of South Carolina in Helen, Georgia. Mondor replaces outgoing president Dan Suiter.
“I am excited to begin serving my term as president, and to promote membership in the organization,” said Mondor. “The GES is open to any faculty, student or staff from any background with an interest in entomology.”
The society provides a focal point for entomologists through the dissemination of results of original research, ideas and accomplishments in technology transfer, and information on entomology and entomologists. The GES annual meeting is held at various sites throughout Georgia, providing entomologists, industry professionals and scientists in related fields a forum to convene and share advancements in the field of entomology and related disciplines. The GES also honors recipients of awards and scholarships and publishes the Journal of Entomological Science.
