On behalf of our faculty, students and staff, I welcome you to the UC Davis Department of Entomology and Nematology. Our scientists investigate a very broad range of fundamental questions involving insects, nematodes, and spiders -- and the plants, microbes, and various animals they interact with. Our department also disseminates practical knowledge resulting from these investigations, such as methods of integrated pest management, with the goal of improving agriculture and the environment for California and beyond. As you explore our website you will be introduced to this exciting and comprehensive research -- and the teaching and outreach programs of our department.
