Entomology is the scientific study of insects, a branch of zoology.
I am a Postdoc in the honeybee research group with a focus on honeybee bacteria. I am also the assistant manager of the Swedish national reference laboratory of honeybee health. Since 2019 I am
PhD-student in Ecology with focus on effects of forest management on ecological interactions, with emphasis on the relationship between diversity and insect pests. All forests are subjected to some
Asmita Baral has just started doing her master thesis work at SLU. She wants to find out if a diversity of natural enemies can provide stable biological control of aphids when the climate changes. We
"Small, smart and on nature's own terms" said the jury about the winning contribution which was about using nature's own small drones for pollination and for supplying beneficial microorganisms.

How can we manage forests and land without threating biodiversity and ruining ecosystem services? These divergent goals require a broad understanding of ecological interactions in nature. Research,
We study the transmission of bee diseases within and between honeybee colonies, how bee health is affected by different biotic and abiotic factors and how bees defend themselves against bee diseases.
Agricultural entomology is a multidisciplinary area of research with collaborationwith other units both within and outside of the department. Simply described agricultural entomology is applied
Forest entomology is applied ecology with its scientific roots in silviculture and population ecology of insects. The main focus in forest entomology is on the insect pests of the forests and how
Researchers at the Department of Ecology drill deep down into ecological issues without losing contact with major social questions. We study species – both those that are threatened and those that
By understanding the mechanisms underlying plant interactions it is possible to develop sustainable crop protection strategies based on design of cropping systems. We focus on the interactions
