Syllabus
Prerequisites: Knowledge of Biology and Chemistry is requested for fully understanding of lectures in Entomology.
Target skills and knowledge: Knowledge on the anatomy, biology, ecology and behaviour of insect pests and their natural enemies will be provided. Emphasis will be given on biological control and biotechnologies. Pest control strategies will be developed following concepts of Integrated Pest Management.
Examination methods: The exam consists of a written test containing open questions. The questions cover the entire program and will be aimed at assessing the knowledge gained and the ability to solve problems. The written test can be integrated with an interview when necessary.
Assessment criteria: The student competence will be evaluated considering the notions and concepts acquired and the ability to use them for solving problems.
Course unit contents: 1st credit: Insect classification
2nd credit: Principles of anatomy, physiology and ethology of insects.
3rd credit: Reproduction and development, life cycles, population dynamics, factors affecting insect outbreaks.
4th credit: Relationships between insects and other organisms, transmission of pathogens.
5th credit: Insect pest management, nature and features of pesticides, impact of pesticides on non-target organisms, resistance to pesticides.
6th credit: Biological control, supervised control, biotechnologies, Integrated Pest Management
7th credit: Pests of annual crops.
8th credit: Pests of perennial crops.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: The course comprises theoretical lessons and seminars (56 hours), as well as laboratory and field activities (8 hours).
Additional notes about suggested reading: The study material is the copy of the slides used during the lessons, which will be provided online: https://elearning.unipd.it/scuolaamv/ (Moodle). The use of a reference book is recommended (see below).
