Head:Dr. Martin Gossner

Our group Forest Entomology investigates forest insects in their broadest sense: ecology of potential forest pests, natural enemies, diversity of forest insects.

Research topics

  • Infestation dynamics of bark beetles, effect of natural enemies
  • Interactions between host trees and bark beetles
  • Recolonization of windthrow and wildfire areas by insect communities
  • Dependency of dead wood (saproxylic) insects on tree and stand characteristics
