Applied Ecology & Pest Management – Graduate Student Position with Rebecca Hallett
Host-plant interactions and pheromone-based action thresholds of the invasive swede midge in canola. Project summary: I am currently seeking an enthusiastic, committed, and hard-working graduate student (Ph.D. or M.Sc.) interested in elucidating the impact of swede midge on canola growth and yield, and applying that knowledge to the development of pheromone-based action thresholds for use in canola to manage the invasive pest, Contarinia nasturtii.
This project is part of a larger research program on the ecology and management of this important invasive species in canola and cruciferous vegetables. See PDF attached for more detail.
