Sam Cook, Rothamsted Research
Insecticide resistance in oilseed rape pests: how the end of the road has forged new paths
Sam Cook is Science Area lead on ‘Next-Generation Integrated Pest Management’ at Rothamsted Research where she has worked since undertaking her PhD. She is a behavioural ecologist, working to apply knowledge of insect pests of arable crops – and that of their natural enemies – to provide sustainable pest management strategies that reduce or eliminate the need for insecticides. She has particular interests in oilseed rape ecology and regenerative agriculture. She has been a member of the Royal Entomological Society since 2002, a fellow since 2005 and was founder and convenor of the Special Insect Group on Insect Behaviour (2006-2009). She loves insects – especially pollen beetles – but doesn’t like hornets after a bad experience in Indonesia…!
