Prof. Richard Wall, University of Bristol, UK

Richard Wall (University of Bristol, UK) is a veterinary entomologist with interests in the ecology and sustainable control of arthropod ectoparasites and vectors and their impact on animal health and welfare. His research ranges widely from fundamental studies of taxonomy and physiology, through to field population ecology and farm-level investigations of the application of sustainable control technologies.  Current work includes studies of the impacts of climate and climate change on patterns of arthropod abundance and the use of essential oils as novel approaches to arthropod control.
