Department for Crop Sciences

Section of Agricultural Entomology

Head of entomological section: Professor Dr. Michael Rostás

Research within the Entomology Section focuses on biotic and abiotic interactions between plants, herbivorous pests and their natural enemies in agricultural ecosystems. Using basic data obtained from this research, systems are developed for integrated pest control in different crops.

Central to our research and teaching is to elucidate the natural antagonist's potential against pathogens and pests and to integrate their effect on pest populations in farming systems.

Our special attention is directed towards research on the complex nutritional, physiological, and behavioral interactions between cultivated plants, pests, and their natural enemies.
