From the detailed studies of the Australian National Insect Collection through to our complex work on insect ecology, we've got Australian insects under the microscope.
Our track record
Our research on insects has a nearly 100 year history.
We've tackled sheep blow flies, invented Aerogard, imported dung beetles and used a weevil to control the weed Salvinia. Today our research spans most insect groups, with a focus on taxonomy, biosecurity and innovations in genomics.
