Whether we see them or not, insects have a constant presence in our lives. From pollinating the fruits and vegetables we eat and helping cure diseases through DNA research, to pests we find in our homes and gardens, there is no escaping the intimate relationships insects share with fellow earthlings.

Learn more about The Intriguing World of Insects and the important roles they play in our ecosystems during a lecture by Dr. Peter Oboyski.

  • 1 pm Lecture by Dr. Peter Oboyski
    Aviation Museum and Library, International Terminal Main Hall (A Side), pre-security
  • 2 pm Guided tour of The Intriguing World of Insects led by Dr. Peter Oboyski following the lecture

    *Dr. Oboyski will be joined by photographer David Garnick during the lecture and tour. Garnick created all of the insect photography for the exhibition. Dr. Peter Oboyski is the curator of the Essig Museum of Entomology at UC Berkeley, a collection of over five million insects and spiders. His research focuses on insects from remote islands, such as Hawaii and Tahiti, in particular, the ecology and evolution of moths. Currently, he is collaborating on a biotic survey of the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia.

David Garnick’s Insecta series features photographs of insect specimens from the collection of the Essig Museum of Entomology at UC Berkeley. Garnick’s images evoke the look of lithographic prints of illustrations found in early-twentieth-century natural history books. Garnick is a photographer living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area whose work is held in public, corporate, and private collections.
