This workshop, covering the fundamentals of tree biology and basic entomology, will focus on how environmental factors can effect a plant’s health and increase its susceptibility to biotic agents (insect and disease pathogens). It will also explore why introduced (non-native) pests can be so destructive and spread so rapidly. There will be ample coverage of pests of wood plants and palms in Hawaii, along with a hands-on opportunity for participants to view and identify pests in the field. To round out the day, participants will learn how to diagnose pest prob-lems and abiotic disorders caused by adverse environmental factors that can cause decline or contribute to serious pest problems. Emphasis will be on managing pests by selecting tree species that are appropriate to a given site, providing appropriate cultural practices, and monitoring regularly for signs and/or symptoms and any contributing factors.
Please bring your own hand lens.
