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.
