The biological control of insect pests using predators and parasitoids
Prof M D E Fellowes
Applications accepted all year round
This project will focus on building an understanding of the behavioural and physiological interactions of insect pests and their natural enemies (predators and parasitoids), and using this to develop better approaches to insect pest management in the field.
