Can IPM keep up with climate change? Dr. Steve Young, director of the Northeastern IPM Center (NEIPMC), thinks so. Young and his colleagues at NEIPMC run a program called ‘Climate Change and Pests’ to address shifting pest distributions and management needs caused by climate change. This initiative is meant to help IPM practitioners stay ahead of the climate curve.
Young’s presentation, Climate Change and Pests: An NEIPMC Signature Program, given at the 2016 New York State IPM Conference, Climate, Weather, Data: Protecting Our Crops and Landscapes, describes this NEIPMC signature initiative.
