This past summer on July 25th our friend and colleague Terry Wheeler lost his courageous battle with cancer. Terry was  an Associate Professor of Entomology in the Natural Resource Sciences Department as well as an Associate Member in the McGill School of Environment.

Terry was an outstanding researcher who worked at the interface of taxonomy, phylogeny and the ecology of insects. He was also wonderful teacher whose passion for learning and his love of nature strongly influenced the lives of many undergraduate and graduate students.
