National Forum on Climate and Pests, Oct 4-6

Next week in Washington DC and streamed online, The National Forum on Climate and Pests on October 4–6, 2016 will bring invited experts together in front of a live Internet audience to speak about the latest climate change science and pest research.

What can studies about climate tell us?
How are pests responding?
What will these changes mean for
homeowners, forestry, and agriculture?

These questions (and more) will guide the dialogue of the forum. The forum will discuss commonalities, identify gaps in knowledge, and initiate strategic planning.
