Special Issue "Joint IUFRO 7.02.02 “Foliage, shoot and stem diseases of forest trees” and 7.03.04 “Diseases and insects in forest nurseries” Working Parties Meeting"
A special issue of Forests (ISSN 1999-4907).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 October 2015)
While forest threats are acting on a global scale, new and invasive diseases have been reported at an increasing rate, and are predicted to be even more frequent in the future. Both natural and managed forest ecosystems are affected. Forest nurseries are also among the most vulnerable environments affected by pathogens. To reduce losses, relevant responses to such diseases should be associated with proper understandings of biological concepts concerning pathogens and the elaboration of countermeasures for their control. The joint IUFRO meeting aims to share and discuss recent research experiences that are fundamental for addressing practical problems, as forest diseases affect ecosystems across national borders.
