Microbial Biocontrol Symposium

Microbial Biocontrol of Arthropods, Weeds, and Plant Pathogens: Risks, Benefits and Challenges
Nov 28 – Dec 1, 2010
The National Conservation Training Center
Shepherdstown, West Virginia

Microbial control of arthropods, weeds, and plant pathogens still remains underutilized, in part, due to knowledge gaps, challenging regulations, relatively limited funding opportunities for applied microbial biocontrol projects, perceptions of risk, and other factors. The intent of this microbial biological control symposium is to bring together microbial ecologists, population biologists, microbial geneticists, conservation biologists, and sociologists to showcase the "state of the science" of microbial biological control, provide a balanced discussion on perceptions of risk, and identify strategies to improve public trust and support for microbial biological control. This information will then be used to develop a position paper to help enhance communications about the state of the science and inform regulatory policy.
