Insects and Viruses – Daniel Heald

16 August, 7:00 pm

200 million years of co-evolution (and a great deal of ghastly death). There are over 1100 known viruses that infect insects, and over 500 that insects can transmit to vertebrates, and many that can devastate agriculture. But there are also viruses that insects use for their own purposes. A quick introduction to the surprisingly large crossover between entomology, virology, history and medicine.
