Name: Whitmore, Mark (Researcher)PrintGo Back

Institution: Cornell University

Description of Expertise:

My research is focused primarily on the establishment of biological control of the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA). This work involves understanding the ecology of HWA in different systems so they can be manipulated to enhance predator establishment and production. I am also engaged in developing and monitoring efficacy of chemical controls for HWA and Emerald Ash Borer in forest settings.
