"Forest Insects and Pathogens in a changing Environment: Ecology,
Monitoring and Genetics" , that will be held in Thessaloniki from the 11th
to the 15th of September 2017. Here
you can find some reasons not to miss this deadline, for one of the most
exciting scientific meetings of 2017. Should you have any questions, you

Dear friends and colleagues,
This is a follow-up message about the all-Division 7, Forest Health, segment of the IUFRO 125th Anniversary Congress with important information about the following:
(1) a social evening for participants contributing to, or interested in, Div. 7, Forest Health, on Monday, 18 Sept. 2017,
(2) a post-congress field trip organised by Div. 7 (an update),
(3) the business meeting of Div. 7, Forest Health, where everyone is welcome to learn about planned activities and opportunities to discuss and contribute.
(1) Social evening for all interested in Div. 7, Forest Health, on 18 Sept.
We are planning a social evening in a beer garden near the centre of Freiburg on Monday, 18 Sept. 2017, from about 8 pm / 20:00 hrs. This is mainly for all those who are interested in Forest Health, or contributing to Div. 7. sessions, or participating with working parties, etc.
Dr Horst Delb, a local forest entomologist, has kindly agreed to help organise this. This promises to be a very nice opportunity to socialise in the beer garden outdoors or in the hall inside (in case the weather is not so kind). There will be local beers and other drinks available, including non-alcoholic options, as well as dinner, for an affordable amount (about 10-15 Euros).
To secure the venue, we need to know that there will be enough participants. If you would like to join us, or if you have any questions about this, please email me (eckehard.brockerhoff(a)scionresearch.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>).
(2) Post-congress field trips organised by Div. 7 (update)
As mentioned previously, we are planning a Forest Health post-congress tour over two days in the Black Forest and the Vosges Mountains in France to see various forest health concerns (mainly insects and pathogens). We have about 20 participants so far but we can take a few more. For more information about this 'excursion 38', please visit http://iufro2017.com/two-day-excursions/#toggle-id-6
A detailed description of the full programme of Excursion 38 is attached. Briefly, excursion 38 (the 2-day post-congress tour) is entitled 'Ecology and management of emerging and invasive forest pests and diseases'. It includes an overnight stay in a hotel in France, two lunches and a dinner, wine tasting, etc., and the fee is 270 Euros.
If you would like to join excursion 38, please email Marc Dittes ( Marc.Dittes(a)intercongress.de<mailto:Marc.Dittes@intercongress.de> )
(3) The business meeting of Div. 7, Forest Health, on 19 Sept.
Although the name 'business meeting' may not be so enticing, these meetings are always very interesting to anyone who would like to know a little more about IUFRO, the Forest Health groups and their activities, upcoming conferences, opportunities to discuss relevant topics, become involved, etc. Attendance of this is not limited to office holders and, in fact, everyone is welcome to come along.
This is currently scheduled for Tuesday, 19 Sept. 2017, from 8 pm / 20:00 hrs. Please mark this in your diaries.
Please send me an email if you have any questions or suggestions (which we welcome).

I am in urgent need of a pathogenic isolate of Apiognomonia veneta (Discula nervisequa), causal agent of sycamore anthracnose, preferably (but not necessarily) from North America. We have tried to isolate it from American sycamore but we have been unable to get a pathogenic isolate. We need it to conduct controlled inoculations.
We will request an APHIS permit to import into Ohio if anyone is willing to share.
Thank you for your consideration!
