Global Perspectives in Integrated Pest and Pollinator Management Weekly Webinar Series begins Wednesday, October 21 (13.10.2020)

Penn State University and the University of Freiburg are excited to co-host a publicly accessible seminar series that delves into how socioeconomic and environmental policies, spanning disparate cultures and countries, can restrict or enable the adoption of novel and/or potentially controversial IPPM practices. As evidence for worldwide insect population declines mount, we must engage in a global discussion to address strategies that slow or reverse observed declines, while also continuing to allow profitable and sustainable food production.

Speakers for the series represent a range of international backgrounds and interests, including academia, extension, industry, and government.  We will discover how scientists are harnessing recent advances in transcriptomics, bioinformatics, and molecular biology to better understand the nature of and problems associated with maintaining global food security and ecosystem functions in modern agriculture. The latter half of the series will introduce several ‘case studies’ that juxtapose common IPPM practices used in paired European versus American landscapes, such as in agriculture, natural landscapes, and urban settings.
