holistic management of emerging forest pests and diseases
Where research and practice meet: HOMED’s new practice abstracts
HOMED’s collection of practice abstracts published on the European Innovation Partnership for Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability (EIP-AGRI) platform keeps growing! After the previous two batches, the project has now published a third one containing seven new abstracts – some of which are available in French, Italian and Portuguese.
What can you expect from these new additions?
- Recommendations on how to improve early detection efforts based on a study of the sites where non-native forest insects were first found in Europe (Practice abstract 9)
- Tips for preventing human and animal contact based on the movement behaviour of urticating caterpillars (Practice abstract 10)
A closer look at the patterns, mechanisms and prospects of tree diversity and forest resistance to insect pests (Practice abstract 11)
Possibilities of exploiting volatile organic compounds emitted specifically by C. platani as biomarkers to recognize plane trees infected by this pathogen (Practice abstract 12)
Tips to improve the success of classical biological control against exotic insect pests (Practice abstract 13)
Lessons learned from a citizen science experiment which helped detect exotic Ambrosia beetles (Practice abstract 14)
Insights into the suitability of an Asian parasitoid as a biological control agent against the spotted wing drosophila (Practice abstract 15)
With these new additions, HOMED now has a total of 15 published abstracts on the European Innovation Partnership for Agricultural Productivity and Sustainability (EIP-AGRI) platform… And you can expect more soon!Read all the HOMED practice abstracts here.
