We are pleased to announce the 2nd international meeting on
Conference registration & welcome reception take place on Sunday evening 28 August. For those interested, we will organize a post-conference excursion to the Åland Islands to visit the classic metapopulation study system 1-3 September, more information here.
Research carried out on plant-pathogen interactions has provided breakthroughs in how ecological, molecular and evolutionary dynamics are coupled to produce the patterns on infection we observe in nature. This conference brings together scientists working in cutting edge areas of plant-pathogen interactions including coevolution, epidemiology, evolutionary genomics, pathogen movement across the agro-ecological interface and community level processes.
