7.03.13 - Biological control of forest insects and pathogens
This newly formed Working Party has been created to increase knowledge and exchange ideas and experience in biological control in forest ecosystems. Targets will be restricted to invertebrate pests and tree diseases, since forest weeds are already covered largely by IUFRO Div. 8. On the other hand, all forest types - including agroforestry - will be considered and all biological control approaches (introduction, augmentation, inundation and conservation) will be included.
