The Department of Entomology’s research programs consist of a portfolio of projects that apply diverse tool-sets, and varied disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches, to address a spectrum of entomological and nematological problems. These problems range from pure discovery attempting to advance the forefronts of scientific knowledge to focused, mission-oriented investigations with the goal of applying scientific knowledge to solve a very practical and immediate problem. Our research can be divided into six broad areas or thrusts as identified by the links below.
