The IRS will organize its General Assembly on September 14th in Vodice, Croatia, just before the 11th International Conference on Biological Invasions (Neobotia 2020 : http://www.neobiota2020.biol.pmf.hr/ ).
On this occasion, a short symposium is organized which will deal
with Ambrosia topics.
Both oral communication (20 minutes) and poster presentations are welcome.
If you are working on ragweed, you can apply to this call of abstracts to present your work to global Ambrosia experts.
The General Assembly of IRS proclaimed in 2011 that the first Saturday of the summer will be The International Ragweed Day (IRD) to increase understanding and awareness of the problem this invasive weed causes all over the world.
The day was chosen because it is early in the growing season of the plant thereby gives enough time for preparations and actions.
This year, the International Ragweed Day will be observed on June 20th, 2020.
