Great job!
Out of curiosity.what, specifically, was your thesis on? I remember you work with caddisflies, but not at all what you to with them.

Larval taxonomy of a particular genus in North America.
Larval taxonomy? Larva would belong to the same taxonomical groups as their imago stages, right? Were you looking for identifying characteristics in larva of groups that are more easily distinguished as adults or something?
Just to clarify in the case that my tone isn't clear, I am legitimately curious- I know very little of entomology, but it is interesting.

Yes. And yes.

Larval taxonomy is pretty important with aquatic insects, as most insects that happen to be aquatic are so in their larval stage, and the larvae tend to be of far more ecological importance than the adults.

Congrats Kai!!! :D


hmm so when a friend of mind got his Master's in Astronomy, we gave him a He-Man comic and told him to call himself "Master of the Universe" now.

what would you call a Master in Biology?

Cool!
What are you plans from here?
I'm still kind of trying to solidify what I want to do once I finish my bachelor's degree.

Grats Master Kai!

- So the New World Order does not actually exist?
- Oh it exists, and how!
Ask the slaves whose labour built the White House;
Ask the slaves of today tied down to sweatshops and brothels to escape hunger;
Ask most women, second class citizens, in a pervasive rape culture;
Ask the non-human creatures who inhabit the planet:
whales, bears, frogs, tuna, bees, slaughtered farm animals;
Ask the natives of the Americas and Australia on whose land
you live today, on whose graves your factories, farms and neighbourhoods stand;
ask any of them this, ask them if the New World Order is true;
they'll tell you plainly: the New World Order… is you!
