The second IUFRO WG 7.03.13 Meeting: Biological control of forest insect pests and pathogens will take place from 6 to 8 November 2019 in Pretoria, South Africa (with post-meeting field trip planned for 8-11 November).
IUFRO is an international network of forest scientists working in a very broad range of research areas, including forest health and the management of invasive species. The IUFRO working group 7.03.13 focuses on research related to the biological control of forest insect pests and pathogens.
The working group meetings are generally not too large (less than 100 people) which allows easier engagement with fellow researchers.
- Send interest in post-meeting field trip: 30 April 2019
- Abstract submission deadline: 15 June 2019
- Notification of acceptance of abstracts: 30 June 2019
- Early registration deadline: 31 July 2019

Forest entomologists and insect ecologists from across the world are meeting in Quebec City, Canada to discuss latest research findings and ideas on forest insect ecology and management. Insect disturbances, combined with human interactions and interventions, are creating uncertainties about the future of forests worldwide. These disturbances, often mediated by climate change can amplify feedbacks to the global climate system.
