Prof Jeremy Allison
Prof. Allison’s research is focused on developing an understanding of chemical ecology to improve integrated pest management of insects affecting forests; and in the long term, to develop a more complete understanding of the role of chemical signals and cues in natural forest systems and the evolutionary forces shaping the chemical ecology of forest insects.
Most forest insects use chemical cues and signals to locate resources (e.g., host trees, mates). As a result, these chemical cues and signals play critical roles mediating host and mate location and have immense potential for use in the development of management tactics for native and invasive forest pests.
Prof. Jeremy Allison has been a research scientist with the Canadian Forest Service Pest Ecology and Management team in Sault Ste. Marie since December 2011, and also has an adjunct Assistant Professor position at the University of Toronto.
