Forest entomology and zoology

Forest-entomology-and-zoology These studies are focused on insects which have a relevant role in forest ecosystems, from different points of view. Special emphasis is addressed to threatened species,  phytophagous insects and their natural antagonists and to the symbiotic relationship between xylophagous  insects and plant pathogens harmful to forest ecosystems.
