Margie Lund

I came to the Vegetable Entomology Lab as a graduate student after graduating from Clemson University with a B.S. in Environmental and Natural Resources with a concentration in Conservation Biology. My background in agriculture as well as past entomology research through both MSU and Clemson fueled my interest in agricultural entomology. I have a broad range of interests including insect ecology, insect-plant interactions, predator-prey interactions, and integrated pest management. My current research explores the relationship between cover crops and tillage practices with insect pest and predator species in organic agroecosystems. I am also looking at the aspect of fear in pest species in the presence of predators. This research aims to determine the efficiency of habitat management in attracting natural predators, and their ability to deter pest species.
