Christer Löfstedt

Professor, Deputy Head of Department

My research interests include all aspects of insect chemical communication with a focus on the evolutionary and applied aspects of pheromone communication in moths. Ongoing research ranges from molecular biology of pheromone reception and pheromone biosynthesis to studies of insect behaviour in the field. I am involved in several projects aimed at biorational control of pest insects by a means of insect pheromones, one of the foremost alternatives to the use of conventional insecticides. 

Major ongoing research projects are:

I am teaching various aspects of chemical communication on undergraduate courses in chemical ecology, evolutionary ecology, sensory biology, molecular ecology,  and and biotechnology.

I was head of the Department of Biology at Lund University 2010–2018, and I am fellow of The Royal Physiographic Society of Lund and the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. I was appointed professor in Ecology at Lund University in 1998.
