The group aims to provide a forum for the discussion of studies in aphid biology. Aphids are important pests of agriculture in Europe and many other parts of the world, not only because of their direct feeding effects but also as vectors of numerous plant diseases. Current topics of interest include pest control through IPM, population genetics and population structure using biochemical & molecular markers, dispersal, interactions with host plants and overwintering strategies. The group meets regularly at research facilities and other venues in the UK.
