How does landscape composition shape the community of natural enemies of a major coffee pest? (NEW)
The worldwide sustainability of coffee production is threatened by pests, diseases, and global warming. In Colombia, the Coffee Berry Borer (CBB) is a major pest problem. This beetle reduces crop yield and quality by drilling the  ...

Functional analysis of candidate genes for wing morphology in the jewel wasp Nasonia vitripennis
Wing morphology is an important trait underlying flight ability in Pterygote insects. To investigate the genetic basis of wing morphology, we performed a genome-wide association study (GWAS) for wing morphology and body size in an ...

De-evolution of the wing: functional analysis of candidate genes for wing morphology in the wasp Nasonia vitripennis
Wing morphology is an important trait underlying insects� flight ability and ultimately several aspects of their ecology. To investigate the genetic basis of wing morphology, we performed a genome-wide association study (GWAS) i ...

Intercropping increases biocontrol by enhancing honeydew availability and quality
Intercropping has often shown improved biological control compared to monoculture. However, these effects are not consistent and appear to be context and species-dependent. In order to achieve more reliable outcomes, a better unde ...

Enhancing plant growth and health by amending rhizosphere microbiome with insect residual streams
Insect production produces biowaste that can be use for different purposes. Adding insect waste products to soil has been shown to enhance soil microbial communities, increasing the presence and abundance of beneficial soil-borne  ...

From fallen leaves to colorful feathers; Carotenoids in the food chain
Carotenoids are a group of colourful compounds, which fulfil a variety of functions in animals. For instance, certain carotenoids are stored in the feathers of birds and give them their bright colours. Others are converted to vita ...

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 ...

Biological control of caterpillars using baculoviruses (internship)
As an intern, your main focus will be the study of baculoviruses as biocontrol agents against the caterpillar Chrysodeixis chalcites. Apart from this you will have the opportunity to learn about many aspects of biological pest con ...

Selfing under stress: Can insect herbivory change a plant reproductive pathway?
This project covers the exciting new ground of induced biotic stress pathways and their interactions with a plant reproductive pathway. As sessile organisms, plants have to deal with stresses while maintaining their fitness. In th ...
