Interviews with Entomologists

During the 57th Annual Meeting of the Entomological Society of America in December, 2009, dozens of interviews were conducted with meeting attendees, including ones with Edward O. Wilson, Mark Moffett, Dennis Kopp, Mike Ivie, J. E. McPherson and others. The first 24 entomology interviews have been added to the ESA YouTube channel, and can be viewed at

More will be added later.

Here is the first of a two-part interview with National Geographic's Mark Moffett:
