We would like to announce that the joint meeting of the IUFRO "Foliage, shoot, and stem diseases" (7.02.02) and "Rusts of Forest Trees" (7.02.05) working parties will take place during the last week of June 2022 in Durham, New Hampshire
The importance of forest diseases increases as global environments are affected by pandemics, invasive species and climate change. Interested scientists are encouraged to submit abstracts on research involving foliar, shoot, stem and rust diseases of trees as we deal with this dynamic environment. The workshop scientific program will be organized in oral and poster presentations. We invite all interested participants to submit abstracts for scientific presentations. Although we will try to accommodate as many presentations as possible, the Scientific Committee, will reserve the right to change your application from an oral presentation to a poster presentation where necessary if time constraints become a problem. A selection of papers submitted to the meeting will be published in a special issue of the journal Frontiers in Forests and Global Change. To present a paper or a poster, you must submit your completed abstract by February 2022 as an attachment to isabel.munck(a)usda.gov<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>.
We look forward to hearing from you, Isabel Munck and Salvatore Moricca
