Symposium: Japanese beetle, Popillia japonica, a new biosecurity risk for Europe and beyond
call closes when slots are filled
The Japanese beetle, one of the worst invasive pests in North America, was first detected near Milano, Italy in 2014. The infested zone is now 35'000 sq. km. A broad host range (>300 plant species) and mobility of adults, and the ability for adults and larvae to be relocated in commerce will contribute to further spread within Europe. In much of temperate Europe, P. japonica is poised to become a major pest of agriculture, floriculture, and turfgrass. This symposium will unite scientists from Europe and the United States to discuss regulatory action, biology, and management of this pest.
Journals participating in Peerage of Science
Available before, during and after the peer review process. All Select destinations have concurrent access to all ongoing peer review processes, and the right to make direct publishing offers to you. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
Available only after the peer review process is complete. Submission to a Connect destination exports the process exclusively and cancels any existing offers from The Select destinations (the traditional "no simultaneous consideration" policy). However, you can cancel export later by exporting to another Connect destination, or by returning the process to full availability. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
You can create a link to the peer review process and give it to editors of any journal of your choice in a traditional submission. Using the link is a free service for both you and the receiving journal.
