I am investigating the mechanism by which male tropical fruit flies detect parapheromone by comparing homologous sensory circuits in females and in closely and distantly related species of Tephritidae fruit flies, with an aim of developing lures from host volatiles and fermentation products that attract ovipositing females of Bactrocera dorsalis and relative pests
