The Department of Conservation Ecology and Entomology is an academic department at Stellenbosch University and is situated in the Faculty of AgriSciences.
The Department of Conservation and Entomology brings together a
considerable body of teaching and research in the rapidly growing and
important field of conservation of utilized landscapes and their
surrounds. In principle, the aim is to have agricultural and forestry
production without compromising the natural viability of the
agricultural land mosaic.
Under this umbrella of conservation in the
agricultural and forestry contexts, the range of expertise ranges from
integrated pest management, conservation of natural communities,
management of living resources, conservation policy formulation to
technology transfer. We are a forward-thinking, dynamic department with a
distinct agricultural and forestry address. This is reflected in the
vision, mission and strategic objectives of the department.
