Learn about the fascinating world of dragonflies from one of the masters in the field. Mike May, Ph.D., will teach you about the basics of what members of the Odonata family are, their life cycles, and give you an inside glimpse into his research investigating interesting behaviors, mostly of adults, including feeding, body temperature regulation, migration, and, of course, reproduction.

His interest in dragonflies peaked in graduate school at the University of Florida where he earned his Ph.D. He spent three years on postdoctoral appointments in Panama and the University of Illinois. He retired from Rutgers University in 2012 but still keeps up research on dragonflies. He is co-author of two books: Damselflies of North America and A Manual of the Dragonflies of North America, and author/co-author of more than 60 scientific papers.
