Brief description

The Insect Science Thematic Area (ISTA) is one of the main strengths of the School of Biological Sciences (SBS), with a long history of studies in Entomology. This thematic area focusses on arthropods, mainly insects, with emphasis on those with known ecological, agricultural, medical and veterinary importance. Generally, it aims at understanding the dynamic and interactive relationships between insects (and their allies) and plant crops, animals, humans and their environment. Staff in this thematic area have had significant association/collaboration with many international/local organizations, institutions, mainly in research and capacity building resulting in a vibrant graduate training.
