Paola Sierra-Baquero

PhD Student

I am a doctoral student program in Biodiversity, Genetics and Evolution, at Faculty of Sciences, University of Lisbon. I have a master's degree in Biological Sciences with an emphasis in entomology from the University of Caldas, I have worked with experience in fruit crops such as avocado, mango, citrus and passion fruit, on issues such as population fluctuation, varietal preference, secondary metabolism, level of economic damage, action thresholds, integrated pest management and parasitoid conservation.
My doctoral thesis will be based on Entomofauna in economically important Anacardiaceae crops in Guinea-Bissau: assessment, dynamics and proposed management towards sustainable production, its objectives are: Assessment and identification of major pests affecting cashew orchards and mangoes. Identify and characterize major pests by doing fieldwork. Determine the distribution trends and dynamics across Guinea-Bissau territory for each of the main pests. Functional characterization of the entomofauna in Anacardiaceae tree crops, to identify auxiliary enemies (predators and parasitoids) of pests. Provide advice on the effects of major pests of cashew and mango in Guinea-Bissau and prospect for control measures as well as guidelines to mitigate the effects on current and future crop productivity
