Long before I developed an interest in entomology, I had an interest in etymology—the study of word origins and evolution. An interest in word coinage is certainly compatible with a career in science. As a matter of course, scientists develop new concepts, discover new materials, invent new instruments, or describe new species, and have an ongoing need for new words to communicate with others about them. As scientific subjects have increasingly permeated popular culture, scientific words have cr...

Cuticular hydrocarbons (CHCs) are the main components of the epicuticular wax layer that in many insects functions as a barrier against desiccation. CHCs also play many other roles, including serving as sex pheromones, kairomones, primer pheromones, and colony-, caste-, species- and sex-recognition signals. In insects, CHC profiles can vary depending upon age, species, sex, and strain. Understanding factors associated with variation in hydrocarbon profiles is important for identifying potential ...

As a managed agricultural pollinator, the western honeybee Apis mellifera frequently encounters agrochemicals as contaminants of nectar and pollen. One such contaminant, the fungicide boscalid, is ...

Relatively few genome-wide population studies of field-acquired insecticide resistance have been carried out on agricultural pests. We utilized the navel orange worm (Amyelois transitella), the main insect pest of almond orchards in California, to study the short and long-terms effects of heavy insecticide usage in the population genomic landscape of insects. We re-sequenced the genomes of three contemporary A. transitella natural populations differing in resistance status and characterized its ...

When I was named the new Editor-in-Chief of PNAS in October 2018, I received hearty congratulations from colleagues from a wide range of disciplines, befitting the intended audience of this venerable journal. The appointment is not my first experience serving as Editor-in-Chief; in 2017, I stepped down after 21 years as Editor-in-Chief of the Annual Review of Entomology (ARE). Although ARE is known in entomological circles as the most highly cited journal in the field, even my entomological coll...

A lot can be learned about the history of science in America from browsing through the front matter of PNAS across its 104-year history. You’d have to look through 73 volumes, for example, before coming across the name of the first distaff editor-in-chief. In 1985, molecular biologist Maxine Singer became the journal’s first female editor; at the time she was appointed, she presided over an Editorial Board of 16 NAS members, all of whom were men. By the time her term ended in 1988, plant molecul...
