Forensic acarology. the utility/contribution of mites in criminal investigations, in illegal trade, in cases of human and animal neglect, etc.
  The role of insect-plant-fungus interactions in natural and managed systems
  Dr P E Hatcher
Applications accepted all year round

Plants are attacked both by insects and pathogenic fungi, often at the same time, yet these are often studied by different specialists.
  SCENARIO - Love isn’t in the air: Assessing how air pollution interrupts insect sex pheromone signalling
  Dr R Girling
