Cooperation Partners

One of the tasks of this working group, founded in the spring of 1996, is the presentation of current research results. In addition, a closer cooperation with groups of professionals within Germany as well as in adjacent countries is strived for. To include important impulses from related research areas (like mass spreading of insect-pathogenic microorganisms) specialists from these fields are invited to participate.
