The original art on the cover and accompanying the related story on European fire ants is by scientific illustrator Carrie Graham, who received her master's degree in entomology in December from the University of Maine. Her thesis addressed the funeral behavior of the invasive ants and their response to fungal pathogens. Graham, originally from Ann Arbor, Mich., lives on Mount Desert Island, where much of the fire ant research has been focused. Graham has presented her research at several regional, national and international entomology meetings. She received an honorable mention in the 2005 Entomological Society of America student competition and was the recipient of the UMaine Biological Sciences Department's 2006 Edith M. Patch-Frank H. Lanthrop Prize in Entomology. In addition to entomology, Graham is interested in illustration and museum exhibit design. She has contributed to a number of environmental and entomological outreach programs and exhibits. Graham continues to work on UMaine's European fire ant research in Acadia National Park as a part-time collaborator.
