  • ABOUT
  • PUBLICATIONS

Dr Drake undertakes research on insect migration, especially by using special-purpose radars to observe migration in progress. He has a particular interest in radar entomology, and has co-authored a monograph on this topic and designed and built special-purpose entomological radar units. His biological investigations have focussed especially on the relation of migration to weather and atmospheric structure, the orientation behavour of insects undertaking migratory flight at heights of several hundred metres, the migrations of insect pests (including the use of radar in pest monitoring and forecasting), and the migration phenomenon as an example of integrative biology (with scope extending from molecular genetics through morphology, physiology and behaviour to ecology and evolution). These various interests are now encompassed by the novel discipline of aeroecology. Dr Drake has also published on more general aspects of applied ecology and insect pest management.

Dr Drake is retired but continuing his research in an honorary capacity. He is no longer taking students; however, any prospective student specifically interested in the above research topics is welcome to contact him for advice. Before retirement, his teaching was mainly in the fields of meteorology and general physics.
