The conference will cover all forest and tree entomology and pathology topics. The response to the call for session proposals has been excellent; more than 20 proposals for thematic sessions were submitted.

Because not all who wish to participate will be able to do so in person, the format was changed to a hybrid-conference (attendance in person or online via Zoom).

Publication Alert: Biological Invasions

Several Division 7 participants contributed to a special issue of the journal 'Biological Invasions' that was coordinated by the IUFRO Task Force on 'Biological Invasions in Forests'. This is the first major compilation of papers on invasions of forests across a wide range of taxa. Special issue editors were Sandy Liebhold (Coordinator of the Task Force and of RG 7.03 - Entomology), Ecki Brockerhoff (Div. 7 coordinator) and Martin Nuñez (an Argentine expert in invasions of non-native tree species).

Hot off the press: Paper in Biological Invasions

A new paper has just been published in 'Biological Invasions' - on the use of botanic gardens to determine which pine species and other conifers are used as hosts by aphids, as a way of identifying tree species that would be attacked if a particular aphid invades the range of these tree species.
