UM Department of Entomology

College Park, Maryland - United States

Research, teaching, and extension have been the backbone of the Department of Entomology for more than 100 years. Our faculty, students and post-doctoral fellows remain committed to these three areas, in addition to outreach and public service. We maintain our historical focus on insects and their relatives, but the Department's interests also span a diversity of subdisciplines, including ecology, aquatic biology, molecular and developmental biology, genetics, biological control of insects and weeds, systematics, evolutionary biology, integrated pest management, toxicology, and insect pathology.

For over 100 years we have combined the best in basic and applied biology to meet the public need for research, outreach, and instruction regarding entomology and related subjects, particularly as these bear on pest management and on stewardship of the environment.

UM's Department of Entomology is proud to offer a rich diversity of research focus areas including basic and applied research in Agricultural Pest Management; Evolutionary Biology; Ecology & Biological Control; Freshwater and Estuarine Entomology; Insect Pathology; Molecular Biology, Pesticide Education, Assessment, & Policy; Physiology, Toxicology, & Molecular Genetics; Systematics & Morphology; and Urban, Structural, & Green Industries Pest Management.
