Workshop on ‘New Threats to European Forests: Modelling for security against invasive pests and pathogens under climate change’ (Brussels, 2012-02-09/10)
A Workshop on ‘New Threats to European Forests: Modelling for security against invasive pests and pathogens under climate change’ will be organized by ISEFOR at the European Forestry House, Rue du Luxembourg 66, Brussels on the 9th and 10th February 2012. ISEFOR (Increasing Sustainability of European Forest) is a consortium of researchers funded by European Union Seventh Framework Programme which addresses problems that will arise from: (1) climate change impacts on forest ecosystem vitality; (2) increasing threats from alien invasive pests and pathogens; and (3) changing threats from indigenous pests and pathogens, or alien species already established in Europe. More information about ISEFOR can be found on the Internet: http://www.isefor.com/
This Workshop will give attendees an overview of the ISEFOR current research findings on alien pests, vulnerable host taxa, the database of forest pests and pathogens posing an immediate risk of invasion in Europe; and encourage discussion on new pathways of invasion. The workshop will be of interest to European and national plant health organisations and risk managers.
