Study type Research


The Agriculture, Health and Environment Department works on the worldwide development of appropriate cost-effective and sustainable approaches to controlling pests, diseases and weeds that affect crop production. Use of biocontrol and control methods involving no (or very low) conventional pesticides are increasing in importance in our work, especially for export crops. The department also has researchers who share a common interest in the many species of insects, ticks and rodents that cause injury to their hosts and transmit diseases to both humans and animals. Particularly strong areas of research include: The epidemiology of insect-borne virus diseases; molecular diagnostics; pest and disease modelling; aerobiology and biometeorology; migrant pests; medical and veterinary entomology; integrated pest management.
