Principal aims

The laboratory LEEA operates in the field of entomology and applied ecology. The laboratory supports the research activities and provide services to those who request it (Ministries, Regional Phytosanitary Service, Agro-meteorological networks, Consortia, etc.). The objectives that pursues the LEEA laboratory are:

  • improvement of facilities for the diagnosis and recognition in order to rapid identification of
    harmful species, as well as exotic and invasive one;
  • development of programs of control against pests in agriculture, in forestry
    and in urban ecosystems (cities, cultural heritage);
  • development of databases for safeguarding the insect biodiversity in Mediterranean forest.

Research activities

The research activities mainly concern the study of the entomology in the Mediterranean environment. Particular, attention is paid to research on new emergencies phytoiatric with reference to introduced non-native pests species in Italy. Further research activities, involve the study of bio-ecological relationship between the natural enemies (parasitoids and predators) and plants pests and the development of predictive models for insect pests phenology in the Mediterranean area. The LEEA laboratory to address their research has chosen different approaches by integrating the research activities in the field with the activities carried out in the laboratory. The educational activities carried out in the laboratory are in support of different teachings.


International relationships

The laboratory boasts several scientific collaborations both past and underway with several foreign universities and research institutions; The output of the collaboration is confirmed by publications with foreign authors.
