The University of Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory (FMEL) and Pelican Island Audubon conservation stewardship class ended this past weekend after six Saturday afternoon sessions. The class featured a tour of FMEL where the latest in mosquito research was showcased and where I channeled my inner Rod Serling to cast the tour photos as sixth dimensional cousins of the The Twilight Zone.
In the FMEL Boathouse, Dr. Nathan Burkett-Cadena, a research scientist at FMEL, gives an introduction to FMEL prior to the tour. FMEL is located at the Oslo Riverfront Conservation Area just south of Vero Beach, Florida.
