Leon G Higley


I received a B.A. in chemistry from Cornell University in 1980, an M.S. (entomology) in 1984, and a Ph.D. (entomology/crop production and physiology) from Iowa State University in 1988. My research focuses on insect ecology (esp ecophys) across basic and applied areas. Active work includes forensic science (decompositional ecology and blow fly physiological ecology), conservation biology, plant-insect interactions (esp. photosynthesis and insect injury) and pest management theory.
