Research Interests/Duties

As Chief Research Entomologist and Project Leader for Chemical Ecology of Forest Insects, Dr. Haverty has the responsibility for studies of the biology and ecology of termites of the western United States and in the tropics, as well as for studies of the chemotaxonomy of termite groups important to agriculture and forestry in the United States.

Dr. Haverty is a founding member of the Global Termite Expert Group. This team is advisory to the United Nations Enviornmental Programme and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in their efforts to discontinue the use of persistent organic pollutants, such as chlordane, heptachlor, and mirex, for control of termites. The team will conduct training workshops and establish demonstration projects to showcase the use of alternative technologies and IPM for termite control.
