Project overview

This project integrated novel fundamental research from multiple disciplines across four different countries — Australia, China, Senegal and the U.S. — to improve our ability to manage social-ecological systems.

We investigated physiological, ecological and nutritional mechanisms responsible for locust outbreaks and migration. This is one of the first projects to apply both highly controlled lab and field-based techniques to connect physiological mechanisms to agricultural practices and livelihoods.
