Our mission is to understand the principles of community and population ecology
of forest insects &
to provide real-life solutions for forest conservation and sustainability
We are a dynamic group of forest health scientists working at the cutting-edge of our field. We believe that scientific innovation and breakthroughs are keys to solving many of world's critical problems.
Our research focuses on many aspects of disturbance ecology, insect-plant interactions, community ecology, chemical ecology, and invasion biology of native and non-native forest insects.
Join us on the paths to scientific discoveries & to make a real difference in the conservation and management of forests worldwide. We welcome highly driven and energetic people to our group.
Christine Fortuin's PhD work has received a lot of press!
We warmly welcome new students - Emma Briggs (M.S.), Mitchell Green (M.S.), and Nia Nikoliadis (Ph.D.) to our Lab!
A paper on predicting next high impact hardwood specialists is now in press in Biological Invasions.
