Behaviour Special Interest Group
Venue: NIAB EMR, New Road, East Malling Kent ME19 6BJ
Insects have refined sensory capabilities to locate mates, food, shelter and, in some cases, prevent egg-laying on occupied hosts. This meeting will provide an overview of the latest achievements in insect behavioural research relating to manipulation of insect behaviour to reduce pest damage in crops. It will bring together researchers and other interested parties to share and discuss methods of manipulating pests and beneficials using semiochemicals and how this might be used in an applied setting for future food security.
Keynote speakers will be Prof. David Hall, Prof. Toby Bruce, Dr Imrei Zoltan and Prof Wittko Francke.
The meeting will start at 10:00 and the formal aspects will end at 16:00 followed by a drinks reception.
