  1. Thank u medam for giving usefull information about evolution of wings .am student of master degree in entomology uas bangalore,india . future i want to work on semeo chemicals & ecology aspects is there any good university for these apsect in world any whare?

  2. You are most welcome! I am glade you found it useful! When looking for a University with a good chemical ecology program, I suggest researching schools with the best environment/ ecology programs. However, it is much more important to choose the right PhD advisor! Choose an advisor with experience, recent publications, and networks within the field that you would like to pursue. There is a lot of great information out there on how to choose an advisor, i.e. https://www.studential.com/postgraduate/study/PhD/choosing-a-supervisor

    Good luck!!
