Cease Lab

We envision a world without hunger and with economically viable, sustainable solutions to insect-driven hardships among human populations

Relevance: Locusts are part of a system linking human communities to the productivity of the land. Alterations in livestock management, crop production, and nutrient availability influence the likelihood and severity of locust outbreaks. 

Research: In the Cease laboratory, we have active projects in:

    • ecophysiology in field and lab settings
    • comparative locust biology
    • insects in coupled natural-human systems
    • nutritional ecology
    • migration and phenotypic plasticity

The work

... is in the lab, in the field, and around the world!

Our team

... has what it takes to make an impact!
