International Meeting on Cultural Properties Pests
7 juni 2011 - 10 juni 2011$100
The causes of deterioration cultural heritage are both abiotic and biotic. Among the latter, insects can be particularly dangerous to all the objects with an organic substrate. Knowledge of their functional morphology, biology, physiology, cycle, ethology, and mode of attack represents the basis on which monitoring techniques and control methods can be developed.
Notwithstanding the immense value represented by cultural heritage and the losses caused by insects activity, little entomological researches and study has been done on this specific subject.
Promoting a connection between those who are working on cultural heritage pests is one of CPBC’s (Centre for the Protection of the Cultural Heritage from harmful organisms) main tasks.
The Meeting will be an opportunity to come together to share our work and to propose new aspects to be investigated.
We are targeting keynote lectures by invited speakers, along with standard 15-min talks on all topics regarding biology, physiology and ecology of cultural heritage insects, prevention and defence. A round table will be held on Friday on more specific aspects of current defence problems.
The contributions will be published in the Bulletin of Insectology
Registration & Submission of abstracts will start Monday, 13 September 2010.
