Entomology is the scientific study of insects, a branch of zoology.
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,
Insects are many, important and diverse. Among other things, they recycle nutrients, disperse seeds, transmit disease, pollinate our crops – and eat part of them, too. They also provide food to many
The Bommarco lab empirically and theoretically explores ecosystem functions in insect-plant-soil food webs in agricultural ecosystems. We apply this to crop production, pest control and pollination.
I am an organic chemist representing the chemical part of chemical ecology. With a broad practical background in organic synthesis, chromatography, and mass spectrometry, I enjoy leading projects
I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Ecology specifically with the Agricultural Entomology working group. I am interested in conservation biological control, community ecology,
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
I am researcher with interest in management of invasive and native insect pest species in crop production (tropical and temperate) with the use of Integrated Pest Management and Biological Control.

Many insects are known to be attracted to the smell of fermented products such as beer, wine and vinegar. Recent work has revealed how this attraction forms part of the intricate ecological
We contribute to the development of new knowledge concerning the use of living organisms to control pests and diseases. CBC is a competence driven actor in biological control, both nationally and
Environmental scientist conducting laboratory and field work as a research assistant in project LIFEPLAN. As a part of my master’s and PhD program I worked at the Department of Microbiology (ELTE,
When populations and species are facing environmental changes, they can only track suitable conditions, adapt to the new conditions or go extinct. These mechanisms, driven by biotic and abiotic
