Research interests

Dr. Bobiwash's lab focuses on understanding the ecology of beneficial insects in agro-ecosystems and the greater landscape. Their goal is to better characterize the landscape and resources utilized by insects to understand how land management might affect insect community composition and ecosystem service delivery. The focus of the lab is primarily on pollinating insects but students interested in other taxa (insect predators and parasitoids) are encouraged to apply.

  • Crop pollination management
  • Pollinator ecology across disturbance and latitudinal gradients
  • Development and evaluation of managed pollinators for agriculture
  • Resource use of beneficial insects
  • Palynology
  • The valuation of ecosystem services provided by beneficial insects
  • Effects of landscape on insect community composition
  • Northern insect ecology and biodiversity
  • First Nation agricultural practices and land management
  • Ecosystem service and biodiversity in perennial agriculture
