Ongoing Projects

The IAP's major research thrust deals with local, national, and worldwide questions concerning major arthropod pests, vectors of disease agents, and other parasites. Regionally, IAP field and laboratory investigations are zeroing in on arthropods, parasites, and diseases affecting humans, livestock, game and other animals in the Southeast, with field pest surveys frequently leading to more in-depth studies. Their results have extensive practical and long-term value in land and wildlife management, domestic livestock practices, public health, and recreational pursuits. Research projects of the IAP are multifaceted and broad, covering reproductive biology, genetics, parasite-host relationships, physiology, morphology, systematics, identification guides, control programs, behavior, ecology, distribution and diffusion of diseases, phylogenetics and evolution and arthropod-transmitted diseases.
