Symposium: Predicting New Pest Introductions: tools and strategies
call closes when slots are filled
New reports suggest an increasing trend of new pest introductions that devastate natural and managed systems in affected areas. Recent examples include the rapid spread of Tuta absoluta (Meyrick), and Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith), in multiple continents. New introductions are attributed to surges in global commodity trade, travel and climate change, which provides novel pathways and environments for the pest. In this session, we will identify and discuss tools and strategies to predict the entry and establishment of new pests in different regions worldwide.
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.
