Since the passing of Dr. Lloyd Dosdall, there has been no professor teaching and researching agricultural entomology at the University of Alberta.
Find a suitable professor to continue the integrated research position at the university.
Dr. Boyd Mori was selected as the recipient of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Industrial Research Chair (IRC) in Agricultural Entomology. Dr. Mori's research program aims to investigate cultural, behavioural, and biological management tactics that farmers can use against insect pests.
Canola farmers can be confident that Dr. Mori's research has the potential to increase the sustainability and success of canola production in Alberta and western Canada whilst reducing the environmental footprint through increased adoption of integrated management strategies.
