An excellent session...
The dramatic increase in the infestation of weeds that invade from other countries is alarming. The "new comers" cross borders, affect biodiversity, and infest millions of hectares all over the world. Some of the invasive weeds are allergenic and may cause significant losses of working days. It was estimated the 35% of the European and U.S. population are sensitive to Ambrosia pollen. This special session will discuss the processes involved in plant material movement across borders, their establishment, and propose options for harmonized and sustainable management.
