  • 11:15A | Landscapes for the Future: An Entomological Perspective

    The role insects currently play in our landscapes, how that might change in the future and what we might be doing about it, including with invasive species in mind will be discussed. Except in limited, but noteworthy cases, landscape plant pest and disease issues tend not to figure highly in landscape planning. Even less consideration is paid to ecological benefits or the interest insects can provide directly and indirectly. Some new technologies also are changing the way pest management is done and we can expect more developments to come.
