Research

The research in the Harwood Lab focuses on broad themes in agroecology with an emphasis on biological control and food web interactions. Our studies combine organismal biology with modern molecular techniques in a variety of agricultural and natural ecosystems including corn, winter wheat, alfalfa, soybean and eastern deciduous forests in the United States. International projects explore similar questions in coffee, chili peppers, cotton, wheat and many other crop systems. For more information on our research, visit lab member homepages.
