Research Project: Systematic Research Support for Economically Important Insects

Location: Systematic Entomology

Project Number: 8042-22000-269-01
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 01, 2011
End Date: Aug 01, 2016

The objective of this cooperative research project is to train and develop students and research associates in the systematics of economically and/or agriculturally important insects, especially beetles. The Cooperator has expertise we do not have in the systematics of weevils, a group of insects important to quarantine at U.S. ports.

ARS will help design research projects in systematics, aid in the recruitment of students, serve as advisors, and provide specimens for systematic study. The Cooperator will recruit students and/or research associates to conduct systematic research, train students in the methodology and techniques of systematic research, and conduct short-term research to solve emerging issues usually associated with invasive species.
