Current Research

My current interests include the broad areas of plant-insect interactions, insect behavior and the application of basic biological and ecological factors in developing management schemes for forest biota.Currently I have projects that: examine the effect of oleoresin flow and chemistry on pine resistance to bark beetles; evaluate the role of behavior-modifying chemicals in host selection by bark beetles; examine the role of visual cues in host selection by bark beetles; relate visual responses of bark beetles to other host selection behaviors; relate fire injury to subsequent bark beetle behavior; and seek to improve our ability to protect trees from bark beetle attack without traditional insecticides.
