Advisory Board and Editors Entomology

Anurag A. Agrawal

Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Cornell University. Collaborates with Cornell Chemical Ecology Group and works on various problems in community and evolutionary ecology of plant-insect interactions. Recipient of the David Starr Jordan Prize.

Nigel R. Andrew

My current research interests focus on the impacts that climate change will have on insect behaviour, ecology and physiology; insect community structure along environmental gradients; and insect-plant interactions.
I am currently President of the Ecological Society of Australia and Zoology Museum Curator, University of New England.

Susan M Bertram

My research addresses how genetic and environmental variation is maintained in sexually selected traits. My students and I use an animal behavior approach that incorporates tools from nutritional ecology, ecological physiology, and quantitative genetics. Our laboratory-based empirical research quantifies the phenotypic and genetically based variation in condition, life-history traits, and sexually selected traits and determines how this variation is influenced by diet and physiology.

Sean G Brady

Research Entomologist and Curator of Hymenoptera, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution. Primary research interests: Evolution of bees, ants, and other insects. Associate Editor: Insect Conservation and Diversity. Editorial Board: Insect Systematics and Evolution, Systematic Biology.

Yves Carriere

Professor of Insect Ecology at the University of Arizona. Member of the Center for Insect Science and the BIO5 Institute at the University of Arizona.

Marcel Marcel Dicke

Professor of Entomology and Head of the Laboratory of Entomology of Wageningen University (NL), Rhodes Visiting Professor at Cornell University (USA) and elected member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Jay D. Evans

Lead Scientist for the US Dept. Agriculture Bee Research Laboratory. Recipient of 2011 Hambleton Award for Bee Research and 2002 ARS Early Career Scientist-BA Award, Editor for Journal of Apicultural Research and BMC Genomics, and member i5k Insect Genome Planning Committee.

Geoff M. Gurr

Professor of Applied Ecology at Charles Sturt University in Australia. Visiting Professor at Zhejiang University and Fuzhou Agriculture & Forestry University in China. Editorial boards of Annals of Applied Biology, Biological Control and Bulletin of Entomological Research. Member NSW State Government Scientific Committee and former member of the Commonwealth Government Gene Technology Technical Advisory Committee.

Leon 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.

Da-Wei Huang

Professor of Zoology. President, Entomological Society of China. Executive Vice Chairman, Editorial Committee of Fauna Sinica.Editor-in-Chief of Acta Entomologica sinica.

Xiaolei Huang

Associate Professor of Biogeography and Evolutionary Biology. Research interests focus on biodiversity patterns (character, distribution, species relationship) and their ecological and evolutionary mechanisms, such as biogeography and fauna evolution in the Tibetan Plateau and the Himalayas, insect molecular phylogenetics and evolutionary biology, and insect-bacteria interactions. Also interested in biodiversity data sharing related issues and policies.

Dezene P. W. Huber

Current work in our lab includes mountain pine beetle functional genomics, tree defenses against herbivores and pathogens, insect chemical ecology, bark beetle cold tolerance physiology, stored pest feeding deterrents, weevil foraging behavior, and aquatic insect biodiversity and food web research.

We conduct our research across multiple scales and we use available tools – established and cutting-edge – to search for answers to complex entomological and ecological questions.
