Hello Forpathers and Forenters,
This is addressed to US-based scientists and others (including managers) interested in tree resistance to pathogens and insects as a tool to manage invasions. If you are not one of these people, please free to discard the message! Also, I apologize for the multiple messages if you are on both lists.
Caterina Villari (D.B. Warnell School of Forestry & Natural Resources, University of Georgia) and I have prepared a document in response to a USDA NIFA request called “NIFA Listens: Investing in Science to Transform Lives.” (Please see attached.) Our document is also attached.
Caterina and I would like to know if anyone in the US interested in tree resistance is also interested in co-signing the document. Unfortunately we do not have time to edit or consider even minor changes, because the document is due into NIFA by the end of tomorrow, Dec. 1, 2017. If you are interested in co-signing the document AS IS, please send your name and affiliation to Caterina cvillari(a)uga.edu<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>.
Thank you all for your consideration of this request!

Planning is proceeding well on the
The 6th International Workshop on the Genetics of Tree-Parasite Interactions:
Tree Resistance to Insects and Diseases: Putting Promise into Practice
We have had a great response to our earlier first announcement. If you did not reply to our previous announcement but are interested in attending, please let us know so that we can add you to our mailing list)
Visit the website for more details on the workshop https://treeresistance2018.ca.uky.edu/
We now are soliciting Abstracts for Oral and Poster presentations for the workshop.
There will also be two publication outlets from the workshop: (1) a special journal issue of Plants, People, Planet, and (2) a proceedings - see attachments and website for details
NOTE: To keep more of a workshop format (and for the special facilities we have selected to host the workshop) we will cap attendance at ~110 participants.
URGENT: (1) Note that the due date for abstracts is January 21, 2018
(2) It is also urgent to reserve lodging by Jan. 30, to keep our block of rooms at this facility (no other lodging nearby)
See the 2 attachments for details.
Contact Jennifer Koch (jkoch(a)fs.fed.us<mailto:email@example.com>) or Richard Sniezko (rsniezko(a)fs.fed.us<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>) with any questions, and to ensure we add you to future mailings. Please pass along the announcement to colleagues working with Genetic Resistance in trees.
