   Our researches fall into three categories:
  1- Aphid Systematics and Taxonomy
A) Aphid fauna of Iran (including aphid parasitoids)
B) Revision of the Lachnidae aphids in the world
   
C) Aphid fauna of Pakistan
 
2- Community Ecology of Aphids
   
A) Artemisia aphids
Study of community structure and multi-trophic interactions in an aphid community using Artemisia sieberi (Asteraceae) and
its aphids (including Macrosiphoniella kermanensis) as a model system.
   
B) Canola aphids
Focus on the effects of host plant (mainly host plant genotype) on higher trophic levels (aphids and their parasitoids) and the
role of indirect interactions on the community structure.
 
3- Biological Control of Aphids
   
A) Aphis gossypii in the greenhouses
Applied studies on how to control Aphis gossypii using non chemical methods especially using of parasitoids and predators
in the greenhouses.
