Introduction

 


BIODELEAR is an ambitious project which foresees the development of an integrated pest management strategy (IPMS) for the sustainable management for the control of Med fly (Ceratitis capitata) in the absence of insecticides using the mass trapping technique with a novel attractant which is no toxic to the people and to the environment, for the application in intensively cultivated Mediterranean areas.

The aim of these meetings is to gather scientists, researchers, and those involved in plant protection agencies and phytosanitary operational programs, to share knowledge, technologies and experiences regarding fruit flies. 

The symposium program covered all relevant disciplines ranging from basic knowledge to applied research. Ten sessions have been considered:


Biology, Ecology, Physiology and Behavior 

Taxonomy and Morphology 

Genetics and Biotechnology

Chemical Ecology and Attractants

Risk Assessment, Quarantine and Post-harvest

Sterile Insect Technique 

Natural Enemies and Biologiccal Control

Other Control Methods

Area-wide Integrated Pest Management and Action Programs
