CSI and alien invaders in Puerto Rico
Date:3/9/2011

"CSI Puerto Rico: Adventures in Forensic Entomology" and "Invasive Alien Species in the Caribbean Basin of Concern to the USA" are just two of the symposia that will be presented at a joint meeting between the Southeastern Branch of the Entomological Society of America (ESA) and the Caribbean Division of the American Phytopathological Society (APS).

The meeting will take place at the Caribe Hilton Hotel in San Juan, March 19-22, 2011, as hundreds of entomologists and plant pathologists get together to discuss agricultural and environmental problems caused by insects and plant diseases (more information at http://entsoc.org/Southeastern).

The increase of international travel and trade has allowed alien insects from different parts of the world to emerge in places they didn't previously exist, and each year they cost farmers millions of dollars as they destroy crops and spread diseases. ESA and APS will address these problems during the meeting, whose theme this year is "Exotic Species: A Shared Experience."

Some of the presentations dealing with these issues include:

  • Invasive Pests and Diseases of Palm
  • Bugs Without Borders: Unintended spread of Intentionally Introduced Herbivores
  • Networking as a Successful Invasive Species Detection Tool
  • Exotic Pests and the Movement of Plant Material
  • Red Palm Weevil (Rhynchophorus ferrugineus), an Invasive Pest that Threatens the U.S. Nursery and Palm Industry
  • Environmental factors influencing potential distribution of the Formosan subterranean termite

And on Tuesday, March 22, a symposium entitled "CSI Puerto Rico: Adventures in Forensic Entomology" will feature the following presentations:

  • Insects: Helping Solve Crimes Since 1325
  • The "Dirt" on Forensic Entomology
  • Discovery and Recovery: How One Thing Leads to Another
  • Forensic Entomology: The Insects in the C
