This specialisation investigates the population ecology of insects, nematodes and weeds and epidemiology of fungi and viruses, including mechanisms of transmission. Knowledge of plant-insect, plant-pathogen and crop-weed relationships establishes the basis for applied research programmes on integrated pest management, disease agents and weeds.
Courses of the specialisation Plant Pathology and Entomology are listed in the online Study Handbook.
