UC Riverside entomologist recognized for research in citrus entomology
Date:12/4/2012

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Joseph G. Morse, a professor of entomology at the University of California, Riverside, is this year's recipient of the California Citrus Quality Council's prestigious Albert G. Salter Memorial Award in recognition of "his steadfast dedication in the field of entomology which has contributed vitally to the California citrus industry."

For more than three decades, Morse has provided timely research results and valuable educational resources to California citrus growers and pest control advisors that have enabled the continued economic well-being of the citrus industry. His extensive efforts in studying the control of citrus thrips, a primary pest of concern to the industry, has led to the registration of new materials needed for its management as well as a continued search for non-chemical alternatives.

An accomplished researcher, educator and administrator, Morse has focused much of his efforts on pests of quarantine concern in export markets, which are critical to the economic viability of the industry. His field studies and publications on Fuller rose beetle are vital as this pest continues to threaten the industry's access to essential markets.

Morse has specialized in the areas of integrated pest management, invasive species research, applied biological control, parasitoid behavior and ecology, insectary rearing of natural enemies, the acute and sub-lethal impact of pesticides on both target pests and non-target organisms, modeling and computer simulation, and pesticide resistance.

He also has an interest in international agriculture and has been involved in citrus and avocado pest management and/or cooperative projects with researchers and industry personnel in Arizona, Florida,
