My name is Steven Juliano and I am a Distinguished Professor Emeritus for the School of Biological Sciences at Illinois State University.
My research interests include community ecology (especially the roles of interspecific competition and predation in communities), ecology of mosquitoes, connections between behavioral, physiological, population and community ecology, applied statistics, and the application of mathematical tools to ecology.
If you are interested in my publications, GOOGLE SCHOLAR is the best place to begin for up-to-date information. A list of selected publications, updated when I can, is also available on this site (above).
In 2019 I was a panelist for the University of Illinois’ Critical Conversation on Genetically Modified Mosquitoes, sponsored by the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment.
In 2021 I did a Webinar for the Foundation of NIH on: Ecological Relationships of Mosquito Disease Vectors: Anticipating Risk Assessment of Gene Drive Technologies
I also collaborate with Vickie Borowicz on a project concerning the role of hemiparasitic plants in restored and native prairies.
Recent workshop: Florida Medical Entomology Lab (FMEL) hosted: A workshop on mosquito ecology & evolution. This workshop commemorates the career of our newly retired colleague L. Philip Lounibos, Distinguished Professor at FMEL, University of Florida. The workshop was held December 8-9, 2017 at UF Indian River Research & Education Center, IRREC, Ft. Pierce FL, about 30 min. S. of FMEL in Vero Beach FL. The schedule of talks on topics related to Phil Lounibos’s research contributions is here. A special issue featuring papers from these talks appeared in the Journal of Medical Entomology. The organizing committee: BW Alto, SA Juliano, MH Reiskind, DA Yee.
My teaching interests included community ecology, introductory ecology, entomology, biostatistics, advanced biostatistics, and the application of mathematics to biology.
