Entomology & Plant Pathology

Contact: Dr Jerome Buhl

Entomology

Our research in entomology addresses the biology, behaviour, ecology of insects, with an emphasis on insects of economic importance. We study insects that occur in a wide range of ecosystems, including pasture crops, vegetables, fruits, vineyards, greenhouse crops and natural ecosystems. Key areas of interest are biological control of insects and weeds, integrated pest management, biosecurity, crop pollination and conservation and enhancement of ecosystem services delivered by insects. Our research considers beneficial parasitic wasps, predatory arthropods, crop pollinators and a wide range of pest organisms.

Plant Pathology

Our research in plant pathology addresses the biology, ecology, epidemiology and plant responses to attack by injurious organisms and provides foundations for diagnosis, control and management of plant diseases, pests and parasites. We focus mainly on viticulture, broad-acre and horticultural systems, but also consider native vegetation and post-harvest damage to stored products.
