Lawrence R. HaleBiography
Dr. Lawrence Hale has a research focus on the molecular evolutionary genetics of insects, specifically fruit flies. He uses genetic analysis to better understand the macro and micro evolutionary histories of various insect species.
- Pathogenicity to potato tubers of Fusarium spp. isolated from potato, cereal and forage crops
- Interactions of various Verticillium species in combination with V. lbo-atrum on Verticillium wild disease development in potato
- Host-pathogen interactions of various combinations of Verticillium spp. inoculum in potato.
- Mefenoxam sensitivity of Canadian strains of Phytophthora erythroseptica, causal agent of potato pink rot, and the impact of P-infestans-infected tubers on the chemical control of rot in storage.
- Potato plant and tuber infection and soil colonization by Verticillium tricorpus and Verticillum albo-atrum "group 2"
- Molecular evolutionary genetics of insects
- Blueberry population genetics
- Environmental viability studies - lobsters
