PhD project: Neonicotionoid and pyrethroid resistance of pollen beetles (Meligethes aeneus F.); fitness and transcriptome changes in response to selection with insecticides.


Pollen beetle population from different geographical regions in the northern countries will be investigated to find different types of resistance.
The genetic variation of insecticide-resistant and –susceptible beetles will be carried out. That will include the determination of kdr-genotype frequencies.
Furthermore fitness compounds on sensitive and different resistance types will be examined to find out the main hypothesis whether resistance have any fitness costs in absence of insecticides.
