Resolving biological impacts of climate warming on insect pests

Abstract: Our aim is to discover potential impacts of complicated natural changes in temperature on pests, predators and their interactions. We are 1) analyzing the features of temperature changes under climate warming in different seasons and locations in important agricultural regions; 2) exploring demographic changes of insect populations by exposing insects to fluctuating temperatures closed to nature with groups of climate chambers, open top chambers, field surveys and meta-analysis; 3) investigating the behavioral thermal regulation of insects and the consequences in demographics and population growth; 4) developing simulation models of population dynamics for pest and predators which can reflect the impacts of climate changes; 5) exploring physiological, biochemical and molecular mechanisms of insects to respond to temperature changes; 6) developing practical technologies for pest prediction and management to reduce the chemical applications in grape gardens, apple orchards, wheat and vegetable fields.
