Dynamic Changes in Phenotypes of Interacting Plants and Insects

Jennifer Thaler Lecture

Event Details

Friday, October 12, 2018
3-4 p.m.
Ebling Symposium Center, 1220 Microbial Sciences Building, 1550 Linden Drive
Dr. Thaler's research goals are to develop a predictive framework for understanding the complex interactions that occur between plant and insect species. Studies of fundamental ecological processes, in both agricultural and wild systems, can provide insight into controlling insect pests and understanding the natural world. Her research focuses on ecological interactions between plants, herbivores, and carnivores in agricultural and wild Solanaceous plants.
