A two-day conference incorporating the Expert Meeting on Oak Processionary Moth
The aims of this two-day conference were to i) identify the existing and emerging insect pests of forests, woodlands and urban trees; ii) evaluate early detection methods; iii) examine the resilience of communities and individual trees to invasive insects; iv) explore emerging technologies that could be developed for understanding and managing invasive insect species and v) consider policy implications in a warmer, wetter climate.
Forest Research speakers included:
- Daegan Inward (xylosandrus germanus and other invasive bark-beetles in the uk & europe)
- Nigel Straw (asian longhorn beetle anoplophora glabripennis in southern england: the 2012 outbreak)
- Roger Moore (pine-tree lappet moth dendrolimus pini in scotland)
- Mariella Marzano (tree health and biosecurity: what is social research telling us?)
- David Williams (the use of pheromone traps for the early detection and monitoring of oak processionary moth).
