Most of the world’s animals are insects. Insects play a critical role in ecosystem function, many of them transmit dangerous disease, and some of them are endangered by environmental change.  Researchers from across all areas of the department work with insects, sometimes as models for basic physiology and development, sometimes to understand infectious disease, and sometimes to study population dynamics and the interaction of species such as herbivores and host plants. As a result, the university has excellent facilities for rearing insects, and  core facilities for the study insect genomes.
