A new version of the Silvalert application developed for the reporting of hylobius abietis in the Hylobe meta-project

The weevil (Hylobius abietis, L.) is the main pest of young softwood plantations in Europe and also in France. This insect wreaks havoc in pine, spruce, Douglas fir or larch plantations after clear-cutting. The most severe attacks in France are not surprisingly found in regions where planted coniferous woodlands predominate, especially along the Bordeaux-Metz diagonal. […]

Eucalyptus globulus Labill. plantations in the Iberian Peninsula occupy nearly 1.5 Million ha but Millions of Euros are being lost due to growth decreases caused by insect defoliation. The existence of tools capable of estimating the impact defoliation has on growth is crucial for helping […]



Assessing tree stability in spruce plantations (the MARCSMAN project)

Under the scope of the MARCSMAN project, a PhD study focusing on snow and wind damage in actively managed Norway spruce forests in Norway has been started by Peter Zubkoc in NIBIO. The student will be working with Barry Gardiner, the risk work package leader, at IEFC in order to familiarize himself with the ForestGales […]



HOMED project : assessing 18 months of work on emerging biotic risks

Due to global change, forests are exposed to unprecedented threats from non-native pests and pathogens (PnPs). In Europe, their number has increased and continues to increase dramatically. Currently, the greatest damage in European forests is often caused by these invasive alien PnPs, whose emergence might be promoted by climate change. The overall aim of HOMED […]
