It’s been a year since I posted here. Sorry about that.
Here is what I am looking into now:
Thought is the blossom; language the bud; action the fruit behind it.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Something I put together…
Researching agriculture aspects dealing with plants and insects help scientists create novel pest controls to aid in potentially ending world hunger by decreasing the yield loss of crops (putting more money in the farmer’s pocket and feeding more people for less) and will help to create stronger crops that are insect resistant due to their genes not due to the increased use of pesticides. I want to help end world hunger, in any small way that I can. Plants and their herbivores seem to have a Red Queen evolutionary fight and it seems that sometimes the plant has adapted well, whereas in other situations the insect has adapted better. I want my future research to reflect that I am not in science only because of the money or the potential recognition that may come with it but because nature is ever-changing and an amazing wonder with which understanding even a small amount of how things work between different organisms in nature can help us as people initiate change and betterment in feeding the world population and for conserving nature’s current state and not destroying the land with pesticides and chemicals.
Beautiful day in Alabama. I think I enjoy being able to work inside during days like this.
