Arthropod population dynamics
The study group on arthropod population dynamics is organized in joint effort by the German Phytomedicine Society (DPG) and the German Society for General and Applied Entomology (DGaaE). It is managed by Dr. Christa Volkmar and her representative Dr. Kopahnke, both from the Julius Kühn Institute in Quedlinburg. The focus of the group is on the population dynamics of arthropods (spiders and insects). Projects on topics of population dynamics of beneficial organisms and pests are presented and discussed. The study group promotes the experience exchange and cooperation between students, postgraduates and scientists. The topics of the group are settled both in general and applied research.
