Jiří Skuhrovec

Main research interest

Biology and ecology of arthropod pests (phytophagous beetles, aphids and other herbivorous taxa); pre-dispersal seed predation (mainly in Carduoideae), biological control, invasion ecology (Coccinellidae and Curculionidae), ecological entomology (temperature effects on insect development); insect-plant interactions – herbivory, seed predation by invertebrates (in particular carabid beetles), environmental factors of insect development; ecology, biology and morphology of immature stages and taxonomy of Curculionidae.

 

Collaborations

Morphology of the immature stages of the superfamily Curculionoidea (close cooperation with Rafał Gosik (Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, Lublin, Poland). But there are several topics according to taxonomical groups (e.g. Lixinae, Mecinini, Tychiini, etc) with different members.

Taxonomy, phylogeny and biogeography of weevils of the tribe Hyperini (with Herbert Winkelmann and other specialists in Curculionoidea).

Taxonomy and phylogeny of the superfamily Curculionoidea – Taxonomical studies of weevils from other taxons than Hyperini are ever done in the cooperation with other colleagues (e.g., Roman Borovec, Jan Batelka, Peter Hlaváč).

Biology and ecology of ladybirds including invasions and biocontrol (with Alois Honěk, Zdenka Martinková, Helen E. Roy (Wallingrord, CEH, UK), Peter Brown (Cambridge, UK) and other colleagues from Europe).

Biology and ecology of aphids including environmental factors of theirs development (with Pavel Saska a Alois Honěk).

Temperature effects on insect development (with Pavel Saska a Alois Honěk)

Biology and ecology of arthropod pests (with Ondřej Douda, František Kocourek, Kamil Holý, and other colleagues).

Seed predation by invertebrates (with Pavel Saska).
