The foliar entomology laboratory seeks to improve biologically-based methods for pest management of aboveground pests.  Research focuses on the ecology, physiology, feeding and dispersal behavior of pests and natural enemies. 

 

2008 projects include:

 

·          Determining the role of carabid beetles in root weevil predation in strawberry fields, with an emphasis on the larval predators.

·          Characterizing the natural enemy-herbivore complex with floral diversification (hedgerows, potted insectary plants) in nurseries and small fruit fields. 

·          Evaluating releases of commercially available natural enemies in greenhouses.

·          Enhancing predation in berry fields with semiochemicals.
