Due to a certain volcano last year’s the emerging Fungal Diseases conference got postponed, but the 2011 New and Emerging Fungal Diseases of Animals and Plants will be held in 25-29 June 2011 in Roscoff, France as part of the Jacques Monod Conferences.
See the listing of speakers and topics here.
[This was postponed due to Eyjafjallajökull – see a recent post about the 2011 conference]
New and Emerging Fungal Diseases of Animals and Plants : evolutionary aspects in the context of global changes
April 17, 2010
The CNRS and Conferences Jaques Monod are hosting a 4-day meeting at the French Marine Biology research station in Roscoff, Brittany on the evolution and dynamics of emerging fungal pathogens. This meeting will focus on the widening impacts that fungi are having on human, plant and animal health by considering the factors that drive their emergence within an evolutionary context. Specifically, the meeting will consider whether environmental change is facilitating fungal range expansions and genotypes, and to what extent this is predictable. The meeting will bring together leading evolutionary biologists, theoreticians and fungal biologists/ecologists in a beautiful setting to consider these questions and to formulate new research strategies.
