Obiettivi formativi:  The course is based on presentation and discussion of cases of study and scientific papers finalized to deepen the knowledge of biology, epidemiology and population dynamics of the most important pest and diseases of arable and fruit crops and forests. Regulations concerning the use of chemicals and biological control organisms will be used to propose sustainable pest and disease management strategies.
