CrypTicks: Virus-induced behaviour of ticks
Tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBE) is a virus transmitted by ticks. This virus is mainly found in Asia and Eastern-Europe. However, since 2016, this virus is also found in The Netherlands. TBEV can cause encephalitis in humans an ...

Insect Neurobiology: What makes the (insect) brain grow?
Large parts of the brain development of many holometabolous insects, such as butterflies, wasps and flies, takes place during their larval and pupal development. During these developmental stages several thousands of neurons are a ...

Finding novel repellents against mosquitoes
Female mosquitoes are attracted to humans and animals by odours produced by skin bacteria. Humans differ considerably in their degree of attractiveness to mosquitoes. Less attractive individuals might release lower amounts of att ...

Foraging success of parasitoids in diverse agro-ecosystems: How to be efficient under diverse conditions?
Parasitoids are evolved to find their host in a diverse system. It is hypothesized that increased vegetation diversity will enhance their performance in the field. However, responses of parasitic wasps to habitat diversification a ...

Influence of weather conditions on parasitoid foraging behavior
Parasitoid foraging in a controlled laboratory environment is well understood, but less is known about factors that influence host location behaviour under more natural conditions. Herbivore-induced plant volatiles (HIPVs) which  ...

Mosquito magnet: is some human blood better than others?
MSc thesis project, BSc thesis projects after consultation. Humans differ in attractiveness to malaria mosquitoes, based on the odour of their sweat. But why do malaria mosquitoes have this preference for certain humans? We hypoth ...

Control of malaria mosquito pathogens
The mosquito Anopheles coluzzii transmits malaria and is therefore one of the most dangerous vector species in the world. In the Laboratory of Entomology we focus on novel tools to control this mosquito. In our rearing we normally ...

Plant defence to multi herbivore attack: dealing with unpredictable insect communities
Plants interact with a large number of attackers. The arrival of these attackers may be unpredictable in terms of the species identity, the moment in time and the order in which attack may take place. It is hypothesized that plant ...

Plant responses to multiple herbivory: does parasitism status of early herbivore attack affect subsequent herbivore community composition?
Plants under natural conditions are generally attacked by a dynamic community of insect herbivore species. Several studies have shown that early herbivore attack can impact subsequent herbivore colonization during the growing seas ...
