Please accept our invitation to the third Bark & Ambrosia Beetle Academy: http://www.ambrosiasymbiosis.org/academy/ at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL, May 7-11, 2018.
At this unique workshop, participants will learn bark and ambrosia beetle identification with emphasis on invasive species, using printed and online keys, and understanding scolytine morphology, ecology, damage, symptoms, and classification. We also provide introduction to beetle management and field diagnostics, including several field trip to outbreak sites. Added this year: everyone can take home a unique Reference Collection of the world’s most invasive bark and ambrosia beetles.
