Research Project: Ameliorating the Sustainable Control of Invasive Insects/work Package 1/integrated Characterization of Insect Parasitoids of Drosophila Suzukii Project Number: 0212-22000-024-17
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 25, 2013
End Date: Jun 23, 2017

Objective:
Work Package 1 will identify parasitoids that may be important biocontrol agents for invasive insect pests through the use of an integrated cooperative research approach involving partners in several countries.

Approach:
EBCL will contribute to strengthening links between researchers from several disciplines to enhance an integrated cooperative research approach by sharing results of agents obtained through foreign exploration and subsequent importation to quarantine research facilities, and sharing information on morphological characterization, biological, caryological, and molecular information regarding candidate biological control agents.
