About The Entomology Program

Picture¬†Research, teaching, and extension have been the backbone of the Department of Entomology for more than 100 years. Our faculty, students and post-doctoral fellows remain committed to these three areas, in addition to outreach and public service. We maintain our historical focus on insects and their relatives, but the Department’s interests also span a diversity of subdisciplines, including ecology, aquatic biology, molecular and developmental biology, genetics, biological control of insects and weeds, systematics, evolutionary biology, integrated pest management, toxicology, and insect pathology.
