School MalaiseTrap Program

The Biodiversity Institute of Ontario (BIO) has teamed up with students from schools across Canada to explore the insect diversity in their schoolyards through DNA barcoding, a genetic technique for identifying organisms. Using a Malaise trap, a tent-like apparatus, each school will collect hundreds of insect specimens. The program aims to introduce students to the life of a biologist and the exciting science of DNA barcoding. Visit malaiseprogram.ca to register your class today!

A Malaise trap is a large, tent-like structure used for trapping flying insects, particularly Hymenoptera and Diptera. The trap is made of a material such as terylene netting and can be various colours. Insects fly into the tent wall and are funnelled into a collecting vessel attached to highest point. It was invented by René Malaise in 1934. #EnvironmentalEducation #SMTP #BIObus #Biodiversity
