Hello my forest entomology and pathology friends,
In case you have not already heard, there will be an IUFRO regional
congress this June in Nairobi, Kenya. Information about the meeting
is available at https://www.fornis.net/congress/en/homepage . The
meeting is designed both as an opportunity to foster communication
among forest researchers within the African continent but also to
build contacts and collaborations with scientists outside of Africa.
I think the Congress will be a great opportunity for all of us.
Forests play an important role of increasing significance in many
African countries and forest insect and disease problems are critical
issues that affect the many different ways that forests are utilized.
For those of us working outside of Africa, this will be a unique
opportunity to build some strong connections in that part of the
Brett Hurley ( Brett.Hurley(a)up.ac.za ) and I have organized an
extended symposium on entomological topics and Jolanda Roux
(Jolanda.Roux(a)up.ac.za ) has organized a session on forest Pathology
for the Nairobi Congress. If you think that you might be interested
in attending this meeting and participating in either one of these
sessions, please contact us. Also, you'll need to send in an abstract
to Dr. Joe Cobbinaah jrcobbinah(a)yahoo.co.uk before Dec. 31 (which is
creeping up soon!!!). Let me know if you have any questions about
any of this....
