9th International Workshop on Biological Control and Management of Eupatorieae and other Invasive Weeds

5 – 8 March 2019, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

9th International Workshop on Management of Eupatorieae and other Invasive Weeds, 5 – 8 March 2019, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This workshop is organised under the auspices of the International Organisation of Biological and Integrated Control (IOBC) and CABI Southeast Asia. The first workshop was held in 1988 to facilitate the management and biological control of Chromolaena odorata in resource-poor tropical and sub-tropical countries.
In 2003, the scope of the workshop was expanded to include closely related species such as Mikania micrantha, while retaining an emphasis on the tropics. Malaysia has been selected as the host country for this 9th workshop, the first to be held in Southeast Asia.
The tribe Eupatorieae, which includes Chromolaena odorata and Mikania micrantha are widespread in Southeast Asia and have significant economic impacts to agriculture, the environment and livelihoods. The entire region has been shown to be highly climatically suitable for the weeds.
Other species of invasive alien plants for which there are good biological control agents available and which could be included in this workshop if the interest exists, include Salvinia molesta, Pistia stratiotes and Parthenium hysterophorus.

Australasian Plant Pathology Society Conference
Strong Foundations, Future Innovations

25-28 November 2019, Melbourne, Australia

Australasian Plant Pathology Society Conference, 25.-28.11.2019, Melbourne, Australia

This conference will be the climax of the APPS 50th birthday celebrations, where we celebrate our "Strong foundations and highlight the latest advances in plant pathology that will lead to "Future Innovations".

Excellent scientific presentations by local and international speakers will be the backbone of our meeting, supported by engaging field tours and workshops allowing conference participants to experience plant pathology up close and to visit key agricultural sites in the areas surrounding Melbourne.
