The Joint Meeting of IUFRO WP 7.03.05 and 7.03.10 brings together experts from different countries all sharing the same enthusiasm in Forest Entomology and Pathology thus advancing our science and Forest Protection. During this meeting, new and challenging ideas are being exchanged and fruitful discussions are taking place.
At the Joint Meeting of IUFRO WP 7.03.05 and 7.03.10 experts are presenting their up-to-date studies on a good number of topics, among which:
• Ecology and population dynamics of forest insects and pathogens
• Invasive forest pests
• Monitoring, surveillance methodology and management of forest pests
• Chemical ecology of forest insects
• Genetic analysis of forest insects and pathogens
IUFRO meetings are the main scientific events in the field of Forest Sciences in general. As such, these meetings bring together reputable scientists from all over the world. This Joint Meeting in particular examining forest insects and pathogens attracts scientists that are actively involved in shaping national and international policies regarding forest pests.
Linking biodiversity, material cycling and ecosystem services in a changing world
Biodiversity is the foundation for almost all ecosystem services. The known relationships, though, between biodiversity and material cycling may or may not inform the translation into ecosystem services. As the concept of the ecosystem service is of interest not only to scientists but also to policy makers and stakeholders, understanding the relationship between these three components is essential. The 102nd annual meeting will support sessions that focus on and explore, in general, how biodiversity is the foundation for many ecosystem services, how ecosystem functioning can translate into ecosystem services, and the role different dimensions of biodiversity play in developing such understanding.
