New York Times features the research of Dr. Justin Schmidt, Adjunct Scientist in Entomology, on
"Schmidt’s new book, 'The Sting of the Wild: The Story of the Man Who Got Stung for Science,'
weaves his theories about stinging insects through a narrative of his personal experiences."
The author of the New York Times story quotes E.O. Wilson: "The human conquest of earth is a
recent and tenuous project; it would be more accurate to say that the planet belongs, as it
always has, to the insects” and he concludes, "To be an entomologist is, therefore, to become a
scholar of your own conqueror.”
