Entomologist Bill Snyder studies how beneficial bacteria and fungi in the soil allow plants to protect themselves against plant-feeding insects and attract predatory insects to their defense. He also collaborates with farmers interested in learning more about beneficial insects, birds, or soil organisms on their farms. Snyder joined the University of Georgia in July. CAES News
