  • About

    Dr. Barbehenn's research focuses on the biochemical and physiological mechanisms that explain the interactions between insect herbivores and their host plants. Research areas in the Barbehenn lab have shifted over the decades between examining insect digestion and nutrition, peritrophic membranes, oxidative stress, phenolic compounds, antioxidants, and plant oxidative enzymes, back to insect nutrition.

    Dr. Barbehenn received his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley in 1989. His postdoctoral work was done with Professor Michael Martin in the Department of Biology at the University of Michigan
