Mahmut Dogramaci

Research Interest
Insect pest management in cropping systems, insect ecology, biological control, arthropod sampling, host plant resistance, tri-trophic interaction and integrated pest management. During my graduate studies I focused on insect distributions in agro-ecosystem and multilevel interactions among insect species. I was also involved in insect plant interactions and host plant resistance studies. I have worked on insect pests of cotton, watermelon, potato, field crops, vegetables, pistachio and vineyard. Currently I am focusing on the development of an environmentally sound pest management program to control the potato tuberworm in the Columbia Basin, including over-wintering phenology and economic injury level of this pest in potato.

Area of Expertise
Insect ecology, biological control, arthropod sampling, host plant resistance, tritrophic interaction and IPM.
