Benefits and Risks of Exotic Biological Control Agents
2nd meeting of the IOBC/WPRS Working Group “Benefits and risks
of exotic biological control agents”, October 30 - November 3, 2011
The aim of the working group is to offer a forum for exchange of information and to stimulate contacts and cooperation between scientists working in the field of benefits and risks of exotic biological control agents. The meeting will focus on the ecology of invasive alien predators and parasitoids.
The congress venue is in a beautiful setting of the Hluboká castle park, just a few steps from the castle itself. The hotel is built in the style reminding the castle interior, so you will feel like being an aristocrat several centuries ago, especially if you will choose one of the few suites available.
Field trip to the Sumava National Park will also be offered.
