Beware of hyper-parasitoids: plant and insect responses to parasitized herbivores.
Hyperparasitoids are major limiting factors in biological control. This is because they parasitize on insects which we use as biological control agents. Understanding the ecology of hyperparasitoids is crucial to develop measures  ...

Investigating plant defence strategies to deal with multiherbivore attack
Plants interact with numerous 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 plants deal wi ...

Internship: Predation of different predatory mites on Western flower thrips at low temperatures (at Koppert)
Western glower thrips (WFT) is a pest in many protected crops including some that are grown at relatively low temperatures like for instance strawberries. Koppert has different predatory mites for the control of WFT in its portfo ...

Ecological Indicators in carabid beetle research (BSc-thesis)
This is a BSc-thesis project. Species diversity (i.e. the combination of species richness and abundance) is a much used variable in ecological research projects. Typically, a comparison is made between two or more habitats or e ...

Flying insect biomass and community assembly across a land-use gradient in the Dutch Flower Bulb Region
Where biodiversity loss has on average been halted in nature reserves, biodiversity of rural areas keeps declining. The larger aim of this project (Living Lab B7 https://www.Livinglabb7.nl) is to enhance biodiversity in the rural  ...

Effects of Bacillus cereus and B. thuringiensis on mass-reared black soldier flies, Hermetia illucens
Insects are increasingly being reared as mini-livestock, for food and feed purposes. It is crucial that the final product is safe to consume. A variety of chemical and microbiological hazards can affect this safety. In terms of mi ...

NEW!! THIS SUMMER: The plant-mediated ecological effect of parasitoids and their symbionts
Parasitoid wasps are commonly used as biocontrol agents. A lot of research has been done on how the environment influences these wasps. For example, plants execute “a cry for help” when under herbivore attack to attract the wasps  ...
