Register now for the upcoming Webinar Series titled INTERNATIONAL UNION OF FOREST RESEARCH ORGANIZATIONS

This series is co-hosted by the working parties 7.03.05 (Ecology and Management of Bark and Woodboring Insects) and 7.03.16 (Behavioural and Chemical Ecology of Forest Insects) and will focus on the Behavioural and Chemical Ecology of Bark and Woodboring Insects.

The format of the talks will include a short introductory talk by the webinar coordinator (5-10 min) followed by 2-3 short research talks (45-50 minutes total) and concluding with an open discussion period with the speakers (ca. 25 min) so that the total length of each webinar will be ca. 90 minutes.
