'Parasite-host interactions'

Brief

Title
Parasite-host interactions

Brief
Vector insects transmit several diseases that impact human and animal health. Pest insects affect the profitability, production and sustainability of food and fiber production systems. UGA entomology studies during the past year have focused on three study systems: 1) vector mosquitoes that cause human disease, 2) parasites and microbes that control populations of pest insects, and 3) microbes that promote the survival of beneficial insects that are used to control pest species. The interactions between parasites and insects are critical to two areas of impact for the Land-Grant University System: 1) Nutrition and Health and 2) Agricultural Systems.
