ENDURE Summer School - The role of IPM in mitigating effects of climate change on pest dynamics –modelling approaches

The objective of the ENDURE Summer School is to make PhD students meet scientists who are actively implementing modelling approaches to develop IPM strategies able to take into account future climate. The summer school will run from October 9 to 14, 2016 and will take place in Volterra, Italy.

Climate change, through its effect on temperature, rainfall and atmospheric CO2 concentration, will impact many agricultural production situations worldwide. In addition to direct impact on yield, climate change will also affect biocenosis dynamics. In particular, pest (plant pathogens, animal pests and weeds) and beneficial dynamics will be affected and lead to new injury profiles and associated quantitative and qualitative damage to crop production. Given the complexity of the crop-soil-atmosphere-pest-auxiliary system, modelling is a key scientific approach to help design future cropping systems more resilient to biotic stress, with limited reliance on pesticides.
