Research Interests:

Our research mainly focuses on insect physiological ecology, behavior ecology, population ecology and integrated pest management (IPM). The population dynamics, community structure and function of pest and their natural enemies in cotton, rice , tea and forest ecosystem are analyzed to elucidate the mechanisms of pest outbreak based on the field investigation and indoor observation. Our main objective is to develop the theory of insect ecological management and to exploit new technique for controlling pest such as insect sex pheromones and other biological pesticides. Now I interested in the response of insect to elevated CO2, O3 and globe clime warming. More than 150 papers have been published in SCI journals and Chinese journals.
