This one-day meeting provides a forum for those interested in the field of forest ecology to discuss current research and policy specifically related to forest insects, including their management (e.g. pest species) and conservation. The target audience is academics, students, practitioners and stakeholders. This meeting will feature a keynote presentation by Jérôme Rousselet a research scientist in forest entomology and population biology at INRA in Orleans, France. Jérôme’s research on pine processionary moth and climate change combines approaches of population genetics, modelling, and field and laboratory experiments. He has interests in the genetic structure of pine processionary moth populations, and more broadly in phylogeography and molecular evolution of forest insects, with a special focus on range expansion processes.
The keynote will be followed by 8-10 conference style talks on research, policy, management or public engagement. The draft schedule is as follows:
