The first flyer for the First European Whitefly Symposium will soon be
distributed worldwide. This symposium will be held in Sicily (Feb.28th -
March 4th 2001) and will be organised by the European Whitefly Studies
Network (EWSN) and hosted by the University of Catania.
The symposium will cover the following disciplines: Faunistic &
Systematics, Virology, Epidemiology, Natural Enemies and Pest
Although the symposium will have a European focus, it will also incorporate
complimentary work from elsewhere in the world. It is also proposed that a
comprehensive poster session is incorporated within the symposium.
Flyers will be distributed from the EWSN office at the John Innes Centre,
Norwich, UK. If you have not already registered on the EWSN mailing list
and have an interest in attending the symposium, please contact Mr. David
Oliver (network.ewsn at bbsrc.ac.uk) or myself as soon as possible.
