Hello! Welcome to our webpage. Projects in the Jamieson Lab involve collaborative research, education, and community engagement efforts that aim to support plant and insect conservation, natural resource management, and agroecology.

We work together with other community members, students, educators, and researchers to provide a better understanding of how our environment is changing and the effect these changes have on the ecology of plant-insect interactions. We aim to inform, develop, and implement strategies for supporting biological diversity and ecosystem services provided by plants and insects.

Our research projects investigate ecological interactions among plants, insects, microbes, and the environment.  We study relationships between plants and their insect herbivores and pollinators. A central theme of this work is to examine the role of plant chemistry in mediating species interactions as well as the influence of interacting species on plant chemistry. We are interested in compounds that play a role in human and insect nutrition in addition to compounds that attract or deter insect pests and pollinators.
