Morgan Jackson is one of the Winners of the NSERC-CRSNG Science Action contest
Congratulations to Morgan Jackson who was one of the Top 3 winners in the Science category.The public has voted, the judges’ scores have been tallied and the results are in. The 15 winners of NSERC’s Science, Action! video contest are revealed. NSERC would like to thank all of the students who submitted videos for this competition, and the members of the public who took the time to watch and share these great examples of science and engineering research.
Flies, two-winged insects in the order Diptera, are an important and understudied component of Canada’s biodiversity. With nearly 8,000 species known from Canada, and likely as many more still to be discovered, flies impact our lives every day, either as pests and disease vectors, or as pollinators, decomposers and in many other ways. At the University of Guelph Insect Collection, we’re working to understand the diversity of flies from coast to coast and beyond our borders by studying their natural history and taxonomy using comparative morphology and DNA. By combining fieldwork with museum-based research, we’re helping catalog Canada’s dipteran diversity.
