Entomology Research Areas and Disciplines
Apiary (bee) research focuses on apiculture and pollination biology. Since bees are responsible for the successful pollination of the majority of the World's crops, their loss would be catastrophic. Current research includes investigations into colony collapse disorder: how and why it occurs, and what can be done to mitigate or eliminate it. Researchers work with geneticists, ecologists, toxicologists, and population biologists.
Researchers are also studying honeybee behaviors associated with swarming, temporal polyethism, and foraging, as well as other beekeeping and pollination management projects. Public education attempts continue through the implementation of urban beehives and conservation efforts.
Forensic entomology is a hot topic nowadays. Current research includes the use of simulated crime scenes containing pig carcasses, where decomposition can be studied at leisure and a variety of situations explored.
Agricultural entomology focuses on pest management. See the article on pest management for research in this area.
