URC Entomology Department

Riverside, California - United States

The University of California began entomological research in southern California in 1906 when Professor Henry J. Quayle was appointed to the staff of the Southern California Pathological Laboratory at Whittier. In 1915, after the closing of the Whittier Laboratory, Professor Quayle was transferred to the Citrus Experiment Station, then located near Mt. Rubidoux in Riverside, where he was appointed first Chairman of the Department of Entomology.

We currently have 35 faculty that bring their individual and collective expertise to bear at the molecular, cellular, organismal and population levels. Our current research specializations include: arthropod vectors of plant pathogens, biological control, insect behavior, chemical ecology, ecology, morphology, pathology, pest management, physiology, insect-plant interactions, systematics, toxicology, insecticide resistance, medical/veterinary entomology, molecular entomology, neuroscience, and urban entomology. With three new buildings completed in the past ten years, the Department of Entomology at UC Riverside has one of the most modern research facilities worldwide. Further information may be obtained from the website.
