The Department of Entomology, Plant Pathology and Nematology (EPPN) works to discover safe and healthy ways to protect our food and resources from pests and disease while also protecting our natural ecosystems. The department offers undergraduate, graduate and a doctorate in entomology and minors in entomology and plant protection.
EPPN delivers statewide programs of teaching, research and extension about insects and their relatives, plant pathogens and diseases and nematodes.
Our faculty and support personnel are located on the main Moscow campus and at research and extension centers in Aberdeen, Idaho Falls, Kimberly, Parma and Twin Falls.
Specialty areas include chemical, biological and community ecology, climate change, nematodes, plant virology, biological control of pests, malaria parasite development, plant pathology, genomics, microbial ecology, biological control of weeds and fungal diseases.
