Spotlight on important agricultural pests
Date:6/19/2014

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Hemipteran insects include many of the world's most important economically damaging pests such as aphids, whiteflies, psyllids, leafhoppers, and thrips. Next week, nearly 150 scientists from 18 states within the United States and 24 other countries will gather at the University of California, Riverside to discuss these global pests.

The campus is hosting the 2nd International Hemipteran-Plant Interactions Symposium, June 22-25, 2014. The symposium will bring together scientists, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the fields of entomology, plant biology and plant pathology from all continents of the world, except Antarctica.

A full agenda of the symposium can be found here. Registration is closed; reporters may cover the symposium at no cost. Talks, poster sessions and sponsor/exhibit displays will take place in the Highlander Union Building, Room 302. The symposium will begin at 6 p.m., Sunday, June 22, with a reception in the Botanic Gardens.

Among the many topics to be discussed are feeding by aphids; Asian citrus psyllid-host interactions; how insects exploit sugar-rich phloem sap; the role of symbionts in sap-feeding insects; the transmission of microbes by the glassy-winged sharpshooter; and the transmission of viruses by these insect vectors.

"We have a stellar line-up of plenary speakers from the disciplines of entomology, plant biology and plant pathology, and 23 oral and 74 poster presentations from participants," said Linda Walling, a professor of genetics in
