Who Should Attend?
workshop will be of interest to entomology researchers in
the USA, the Caribbean Region, and Central and South America
who are in the vanguard of biological control of invasive
pest species. The workshop will be highly relevant to
international (e.g., North American Plant Protection
Organization NAPPO, the Caribbean Plant Protection
Commission CPPC, the Instituto Interamericano de Cooperacion
para la Agricultura IICA, the Food and Agricultural
Organization FAO of the UN, etc.), national (e.g., USDA
APHIS PPQ, Department of Homeland Security, etc.) and state
(e.g., Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services FDACS) regulatory agencies. The workshop will also
target growers and extension specialists, who are often
impacted first by threats posed by new invasive pests.
