International Symposium Ecology of Aphidophaga 15
The purpose of Aphidophaga is to provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of research on organisms contributing to the mortality of aphids (Hemiptera: Aphididae). Aphidophagous organisms include predators, parasitoids and pathogens of aphids.
Aphidophaga is a meeting focused on the ecology of arthropods that have evolved feeding relationships with aphids, many of which provide ecological services as biological control agents of pests in agricultural, forest and urban ecosystems. At the Symposium, senior and junior researchers from around the world, graduate students and post-docs, meet to present scientific advances and ideas in a friendly and convivial atmosphere. The Symposium fosters a variety of perspectives on aphid biological control and creates opportunities for multinational collaborations among participants.
