The Department of Nematology's weekly NEMA 250 seminar series is presented this week by:

Adam Dale, Assistant Professor, Department of Entomology & Nematology, University of Florida, Gainesville

Seminar Title: "Insect ecology and management in lawns: interactions between plants, insects, and parasites"

Biography: Dr. Adam Dale is an Assistant Professor in the Entomology and Nematology Department at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL. His program is broadly focused on the ecology of insects in urban ecosystems, working towards more sustainable solutions to urban development and pest and plant management. Adam's research includes investigating the ecology of insects on urban trees, the effects of plant diversity on insect communities, the movement of invasive species, and biological control of insect herbivores. Although most of his previous work has centered around insects and trees in urban ecosystems, he has more recently increased his efforts in the top-down and bottom-up regulation of insects in urban and residential lawns, including work with entomopathogenic nematodes.
