    Biosecurity

    In this specialization, students receive instruction in biosecurity emphasizing areas of entomology, nematology, plant pathology and weed science. The curriculum focuses on the study of invasive species, including their detection, identification, exclusion, regulation and management. Emphasis is placed on understanding the impacts nonindigenous species can have on financial, legal, political and social systems.

    Students will find employment in agribusiness or government agencies concerned with biosecurity, agro-terrorism, pest management, crop production and environmental protection. This specialization is excellent preparation for graduate study in the University of Florida Plant Medicine Program (PMP), a professional doctoral program leading to the Doctor of Plant Medicine (D.P.M.).

    Plant Protection

    Students will receive instruction in the pest science areas of entomology, nematology, plant pathology and weed science. Emphasis is placed on understanding the crop/plant ecosystem and the need for managing pests. The curriculum focuses on the theory and application of biological, chemical and integrated management programs for quality environments.
