University Majors

University of California, Davis
Entomology B.S.

Insects are the most diverse group of animals on earth, filling niches in ecosystems from the tropics to the Arctic. Their variety and sheer numbers make them significant factors in human economy and society, whether they are helpful or harmful. Entomologists study insects in the context of their biological systems and their importance to humanity. They research the behavior, biology, and population dynamics of insects. They develop effective, environmentally sound methods of controlling domestic and agricultural pests; they study ways to increase the productivity of economically useful insects such as honeybees; and they conduct studies to understand the diversity and ecological roles of insects throughout the world.
