The main purpose of the Conference is to fuel the brain about the various approaches that allow the prevention or mitigation of invasive species' negative impacts. It aims at:
- producing a state-of-the-art of knowledge about major invasive species and invasion processes, as well as their consequences on ecosystems where they settle and multiply;
- documenting their socio-environmental impacts and the associated financial costs;
- promoting interactions between academic, political and operational stakeholders in order to identify and to evaluate the most accurate leverages towards a good surveillance and management of invasive species.
Early registration and abstract submission for the International Symposium IUFRO on Pine Wilt Disease is now possible on the following website:
The First Annual Meeting of HOMED will be held in Banca Etica of Padua (Italy) from 27 to 29 November.
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.
