“My colleagues and I tested severe and moderate drought on cotton plants during my dissertation at Texas A&M University,” Sconiers said. “We wanted to document physiological changes in plants under these drought conditions that would explain why we observe so much variation in how insects respond. We found clear indicators in plant development between severe and moderate stress that would explain some of the variation, including differences in nutrients (protein and sugars), available plant tissue to feed from, plant metabolic rate, and means to hide from predatory animals. We can use what we learned to understand the movements of insect pests and which crops and plants are most susceptible to economic damages.”
Sconiers joined the Ozarks faculty in 2016年8月 after spending the previous two years as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Entomology at North Carolina State University. The native of California earned his undergraduate degree from the University of California at Irvine before completing his Ph.D. in entomology from Texas A&M in 2014.
