A Journey into the World of Pests
Open to everyone attending the event.
The presentation will focus on arthropod pests and disease pathogens of woody ornamental plants and the diagnostic process of assessing these agents as the cause of plant symptoms. This will include videos, photos, and live diagnostic demonstrations of plant samples performed under a microscope (projected on screen) to provide a unique view of organisms and the damage they do to plant tissue. Relevant information including biology, life cycle and basic management will be discussed.
