Portrait of David G Riley

Emeritus Professor

Dr. Riley is a retired emeritus professor in the Department of Entomology at The University of Georgia. Some of his proudest achievements were receiving the Entomological Society of America (ESA) Recognition Award in Entomology, serving as president of the SE Branch of the ESA, 27½ years of vegetable entomology service at UGA and 5½ years of service at Texas A&M. He has authored or co-authored over 200 publications, served as the Graduate Coordinator for the Masters in Plant Protection and Pest Management degree, developed and taught several graduate courses, including ENTO 6350 Crop Specific Insect Management. He has served as major professor for 28 graduate students and served on many other graduate student committees, but is currently not taking on new graduate students!
Dr. Riley’s current project is writing a text book on the management of insect pests in specific vegetable crops, designed to provide both practical and in-depth information on how to manage an insect pest on a given crop in Georgia and the southeastern USA. It is designed to be both a permanent reference on crop-specific insect management for ENTO 6350, but also designed for quick and easy understanding of crop insect biology and best management practices. Even though the book will be targeted at commercial vegetable crop production, it will also be an invaluable handbook for master gardeners, small scale farmers and anyone interested in vegetable plant production.
