Faculty Spotlight: Professor Emeritus Dr. Pedro Barbosa
Imagine having to walk across the George Washington Bridge just to find some green- green grass, trees, maybe a couple of flowers. This is what Dr. Pedro Barbosa, Entomology Professor Emeritus of the University of Maryland, did throughout his childhood. Growing up in New York, Dr. Barbosa didn’t see much nature in the city and since his family didn’t own a car, he would frequently walk across the GW Bridge to New Jersey for that purpose.
Associate Professor of Entomology
Dr. Gruner is a terrestrial community ecologist who believes it is important to apply basic science to address problems concerning biological invasions, pest management, and conservation. He researches how different species interact within food webs and how biodiversity is maintained in ecological communities and ecosystems. Building on previous fieldwork in the Pacific and several ongoing field projects in California, he is applying basic ecological theory and techniques to enhance the sustainable management of cropping systems in Maryland.
