A Healthy Respect for Spiders
Spiders are everywhere in our worlds. The fear they evoke is to some degree well-reasoned given that they are tiny, elusive, venomous predators. However, the value of spiders is incalculable as they play critical roles in maintaining ecosystem balance and their silks and venoms inspire new drugs, pesticides and biomaterials.  Navigating the relationship between humans and spiders is complex and should be done with clear understanding of the risks and benefits of spiders. In this talk I will discuss some of the things I find inspiring about spiders, in particular the chemicals in their venoms. After a general introduction, I will focus specifically on spider diversity in the Pacific Northwest and discuss the known risks of spiders in this area, including hobo spiders. 

We look forward to seeing you at the
