Recent studies indicate that combined exposure to pathogenic and chemical stress may lead to more profound disease manifestation. An interdisciplinary research project at the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences is developing a conceptual insect-pathogen model to explore the impact of chemical stress on host and pathogen parameters..
