4 – 8 September 2017, Lisboa, Portugal
EMAPI Conferences are held in alternate years at selected venues around the world. They are unique meetings where it is possible to present state of the art alien plant research.
The aim of the EMAPI of 2017 is to promote the opportunity of sharing findings and experiences, and presenting syntheses of state-of-the-art knowledge on alien plant invasions in order to face the many challenges of this thematic and create new opportunities to address it. Scientists, managers and policy makers from around the world will interact and explore ways to face global and regional challenges presented by alien plant invasions, for the benefit of the present and future generations.
Duccio Rocchini, Associate Scientist of Ecopotential, will be an invited keynote speaker, with a plenary lecture on session “Chasing invasive species with high technology”, at the International Conference on Ecology and Management of Alien Plant Invasions 2017, talking about the opportunities offered by remote sensing for mapping the current distribution of invasive plants and the early detection of new incursions.
