Chemical ecology

Bixenmann, Ryan

Postdoctoral Research Associate

My research focuses on the chemical interactions that underlie trophic interactions with particular focus on plant-herbivore interactions and indirect defenses. Currently, I am investigating the use of perennial grass species as alternative hosts and pest management strategy for the wheat pest Cephus cintus. In addition to managing perennial grasses as a pest management tool, I am investigating how to manage the same grass stands to promote pollinator diversity through the addition of native floral resources.
