Here you can find examples of assignments and publications that SLU Risk assessment of plant pests are working with. Risk assessments Risk assessments are frequently conducted as so-called Pest Risk

Grace contributes to food security with push-pull technologies

Grace Mercy want to contribute to food security, sustainable agriculture and new biocontrol solutions with her new PhD project on push-pull technology. This is a cropping system that that reduces

SLU Biodiversity and biocontrol lab

We perform research on biodiversity and biological control of pests and weeds in agricultural landscapes. We study the links between biodiversity, food-web structure and biological control, and how


Resilience of biological control A high diversity of predators can contribute to improved regulation of pests in the short-term, and theory predicts that it should increase resilience to disturbances

Researchers at the Department of Ecology drill deep down into ecological issues without losing contact with major social questions. We study species – both those that are threatened and those that

Agricultural entomology

Agricultural entomology is a multidisciplinary area of research with collaborationwith other units both within and outside of the department. Simply described agricultural entomology is applied

Insect Ecology

Insects are many, important and diverse. To understand insect diversity, we need to understand both the environmental determinants of insect diversity and abundances, the biotic interactions between

Ecology of invasions and conservation introductions

The ecology of non-native species’ invasions and the establishment of wanted species are similar. For one group (the invasives) we try and find out what is relevant for colonisation, establishment

Insect evolution

When populations and species are facing environmental changes, they can only track suitable conditions, adapt to the new conditions or go extinct. These mechanisms, driven by biotic and abiotic

Effect of land use on insect ecology

Intensification of agriculture and the associated loss of habitat diversity is a key driver of global declines of arthropod biodiversity. Insects utilize different habitats to meet their resource
