Research Project: Systematic Research Support for Economically Important Insects

Location: Systematic Entomology

Project Number: 8042-22000-263-03
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 01, 2011
End Date: Aug 01, 2016

Objective:
The objective of this cooperative research project is to train and develop students and research associates in the systematics of economically and/or agriculturally important insects, especially beetles. The Cooperator has expertise we do not have in the systematics of weevils, a group of insects important to quarantine at U.S. ports.

Approach:
ARS will help design research projects in systematics, aid in the recruitment of students, serve as advisors, and provide specimens for systematic study. The Cooperator will recruit students and/or research associates to conduct systematic research, train students in the methodology and techniques of systematic research, and conduct short-term research to solve emerging issues usually associated with invasive species.
