3rd Joint Meeting of ISCE-APACE, August 8-12/ 2022, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
The team members from EXTEMIT-K has represented the bark beetle Ips typographus research current findings in the prestigious society, International Society of Chemical Ecology integrated with Asia-Pacific Association of Chemical Ecologist (ISCE-APACE).
Research findings were reported as oral and poster presentation under the topics given below Dr. Anna Jirošová, her Ph.D. students Barbora Stříbrská and Rajarajan Ramakrishnan and other students from Extemit- K Mayuri Shewale and Johny Jibin.
During the event, Rajarajan Ramakrishnan, EXTEMIT-K PhD Student received award for “international travel grant for young students” and gave talk for award winners.
Mayuri Schewale won the price for poster presentation with electroantennography topic awarded by Syntech comp.Our team members say "it was indeed an absolute pleasure to meet many excelling scientists from the research field covered in the conference"
Initial talk was given as Oral presentation by Dr. Jirošová titled “Infestation of Norway spruces by tree-killing bark beetles Ips typographus was prevented by anti-attractant baits consisting of newly added trans-4-thujanol.” Anna Jirošová, Rastislav Jakuš, Roman Modlinger, Fredrik Schlyter.
Symposium 2: Application of semiochemicals in insect pest management,
