On November 26 Paul De Luca presented a seminar of his research documenting arthropod diversity at The Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve, on Eleuthera Island, in The Bahamas. Dr. De Luca was invited to present his findings as part of the Fall 2014 Levy Preserve Lecture Series. He has been working at The Levy Preserve since 2012 at the request of The Bahamas National Trust which oversees the management of the national park system in The Bahamas. In the 2 years since he has been working there he has identified over 300 species of arthropods, including the recent discovery of a new species of katydid which he is currently describing in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Toronto.
