Capsella plants and its weevil are back! Want to know what they're hiding? :)
We have participated in a conference of the ecological society of Korea which was at Seoul Women's University. 보은 & 정민 gave oral presentations. 지숙 & 관형 & 주희 & 한영 gave poster presentation. All of your presentations were great and I hope 관형 & 주희 & 정민 & 한영 enjoyed their first academic conference. Last but not least, 관형 got the first conference poster award of PIIE lab!!
There are still many plants and insects that survive in winter... so, PIIE lab fieldwork never stops in winter! ;-)
All members went to Jukri early in the morning and did weeding and planted Erigeron annuus and Brassica species. Even we had lab meetings in the field. Thank you all!
